The Winsten Scholarship is normally available to students applying to study on an PhD course in our Department and is awarded every three years. This will not be available for 2021-22.
The Winsten Scholarship is named after Professor Chris Winsten, who was an internationally renowned mathematician who worked at our University for more than 25 years. His reputation is based on his application of mathematical and statistical ideas to areas of economics leading to the eponymous Prais-Winsten transformation still used by modern economists today and to the groundbreaking Beckmann-McGuire-Winsten (1955) approach to transportation economics.
Chris had an intuitive geometrical approach that found solutions to difficult analytic problems. He left the bulk of his fortune to further the reputation of Essex mathematics.
