Chrystal Macmillan was a pioneering campaigner for social justice. In 1896, she was the first woman to graduate from the University of Edinburgh in science, later converting to law, and becoming one of the first group of women to be called to the English bar in 1924.

She was a leading suffragist, campaigning for votes for women and equality of opportunity in other spheres. She was a prominent figure in the international women's movement, campaigning for peace and conflict resolution during the First World War, and was a delegate to the Paris Peace Conference in 1919.

We have recognised these achievements by naming our School's building the Chrystal Macmillan Building and by establishing a PhD studentship in her name open to applicants working in the fields of social justice, gender and equality, human rights, and peace and conflict resolution.

Eligibility

This studentship is available only to students intending to commence PhD study in September 2022 and who are pursuing a PhD topic in one of the following fields: social justice, gender and equality, human rights, peace and conflict resolution.

Please note this award is only for PhD study, not for MSc by Research.
