Just received another letter of rejection for a PhD scholarship from a UK uni (the second in order).
The email went along the lines 'Unfortunately you were not selected for an award. There was very strong competition for the limited number of awards available this year.. We thank you for your interest in this competition and wish you every success in your future education and career.'
To be honest, I am starting to get disappointed by these subsequent rejections and starting to question my academic worth...
Has anyone had a similar experience? Have you been awarded a scholarship in the end?
Should one keep trying?
Thank you in advance...
Email or call them back and ask for feedback. They may say no but you may also get very useful feedback on what you are missing.
I imagine that PhD applications to all positions are going to be through the roof right now with next to nobody apparently hiring the latest crop of graduates (or anyone else at the moment).
I'm afraid you are going to have to keep trying in the current climate.
