---- "BRAIN GAIN SCHEME" for the UK -----------------------------------

The Office of Science and Technology has announced a 10 million "brain
gain" scheme for over 100 students from India, China, Hong Kong, Russia,
and the developing world to study here for 3 years for a PhD, from
October 2004.  Visas for mathematicians, scientists and engineers will
allow them to work in the UK for 12 months post-PhD.

UK Research Councils will match funding from BP, Hutchison Whampoa (Hong
Kong), Scottish Power, and Vodafone for this scheme, to be administered
for the OST by the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research
The awards recognise the work done by Dorothy Hodgkin to help overseas
students, particularly women, to study in the UK.

Details will be announced in January 2004.
The list of 150 eligible (developing world) countries, from Afghanistan
to Zimbabwe, can be downloaded from the website
