The Peter Watson International Scholarship


PWIS is a prestigious scholarship that offers 16-18 year old UK students, who have undertaken a science related Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), the opportunity to gain additional recognition for their research.

 In light of the 2020-2021 COVID-19 situation and its potential ongoing impact in 2021 we have regretfully taken a decision to cancel the Peter Watson International Scholarship this year.

We are current planning the 2021-2022 programme of events - more news will be posted on the site early in 2021.

Thank you for your interest in PWIS. Why not find out a little more about us by downloading our general prospectus?
