If you are keen on pursuing Phd, you should generally have a relevant Masters Degree, have some years of experience in the relevant industry and then approach a University with a good Research Proposal about what Research you intend to do, the methodology, the expertise you can provide for the research, etc and start dialogue with a professor from the University through emails.
Once the professor approves the research Proposal, then the student can apply for scholarships. Funding for Phd is generally available once the research is approved by the relevant Professor. You should be prepared to spend about 3 to 5 years to complete research. Generally students pursing Phd will be get opportunity to work as a Tutor or as a Teaching assistant which will be paid for. But PhD is a highly rigorous course and it is not meant for the weak hearted.
So the first step in doing PhD is to write a good Research Proposal.
