WRoCAH AHRC Competition Studentships
The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities is offering around 50 studentships starting in October 2018 across Leeds, Sheffield and York, through the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Block Grant Partnerships scheme.
The closing deadline for the receipt of applications is 17:00 GMT on Wednesday 24 January 2018. Applications received after this deadline will NOT be considered for funding.
Am I eligible?
WRoCAH AHRC Competition Studentships are 2- or 3-year financial awards. You must have applied for a place of study at your chosen University to be eligible to apply for funding through our competition.
Applicants MUST be either:
- NEW applicants who have applied for a place of study at either Leeds, Sheffield or York in an eligible School, Department or Centre for start in October 2018.
- EXISTING students who are no further than 12 months (full time) or 24 months (part time) into their PhD by October 2018, in an eligible School department or Centre, for award start in October 2018.
AHRC studentships are only available to students from the UK or European Union. Applications cannot be accepted from students liable to pay fees at the Overseas rate. Normally UK students will be eligible for a full award which pays fees and a maintenance grant if they meet the residency criteria and EU students will be eligible for a fees-only award, unless they have been resident in the UK for 3 years immediately prior to taking up the award.
Why should I apply?
WRoCAH offers a vibrant and established doctoral student community. Students work, network and learn with an cohort of doctoral researchers from across the three White Rose Universities, with the engagement and support of the 250+ other students who joined the College since 2014.
Research and training support
Exceptional support and a range of additional funding schemes are available to students to support training activities, research data gathering, running events and undertaking knowledge exchange projects.
While it may feel a little early to be thinking about what you are going to do after your PhD, a central feature of the WRoCAH training scheme is a month spent with an external organisation focusing on just that. The month is spent on a project specifically targeted at improving your employability skills in relation to your individual set of professional skills and your career aspirations.
