Education & Research in the field of Urban Studies

Urban Studies Foundation (USF) was established in 2008 as a charitable company and is regulated by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). Our main objectives are to advance academic research and education in the field of urban studies, and to promote knowledge transfer, exchange and mobilisation in the field of urban studies. Using monies gifted from the USJ, the USF funds a variety of urban research, exchange and dissemination projects, including:

  • PhD Studentships
  • Post-doctoral Research Fellowships

We are run by a board of 11 members (trustees).
