The London Arts and Humanities Partnership is pleased to invite applications from candidates for AHRC LAHP Collaborative Doctoral Awards for 2021/22 entry.
Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs) provide funding for doctoral students to work on a project in collaboration with an organisation outside higher education. They are intended to encourage and develop collaboration and partnerships and to provide opportunities for doctoral students to gain first-hand experience of work outside the university environment. They enhance the employment-related skills and training available to the research student during the course of the award. Collaborative Doctoral Awards are not only a route into academia but also provide hands-on work experience in the cultural sector and transferrable skills.
The studentship includes a stipend at the Research Council UK Home/ EU rate (£17,609 per annum) plus fees for three and half years. The awarded candidate will also be entitled to a £550 per annum stipend top-up. Studentships can be either full or part-time. As a LAHP student, the successful candidate will have full access to the LAHP Doctoral Training Partnership development activities and networking opportunities, joining a cohort of about 90 students per year.
Listed below are the Collaborative Doctoral Award projects that are currently recruiting across the LAHP partnership for October 2021 entry.
Please note that LAHP only accepts applications for the four Collaborative Doctoral Awards projects listed below. Candidates wishing to apply to more than one of the four listed CDA projects should submit separate applications. Those wishing to submit a proposal for a project of their own should submit this via the academic supervisor when project applications re-open in the summer.
2021/22 Collaborative Doctoral Award Applications
Applicants must meet the eligibility and residency criteria.
LAHP studentships are open to UK and international students who meet the residency requirements as detailed on the UKRI Guidance document on EU and International eligibility. Please note that the AHRC will only fund the Home fee for international applicants. The funding to cover the difference between the Home and international fee must be sought elsewhere (i.e. from an institutional, external funder or student contributions). Students should discuss this further with their prospective supervisor.
LAHP encourages all international applicants to apply to other funding sources that could cover the difference between the Home and international fee.
Applicants should have a good undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline, and a Masters-level qualification or equivalent which meets AHRC requirements for research training. Applicants with relevant work/professional experience who are considering doing a PhD are also encouraged to apply.
Please contact the Admissions Office of the institution where you are applying for a PhD place to determine your fee status. LAHP is not able to advise on fee status.
Funding is available for both full-time and part-time students. Awards cannot normally be deferred. Successful candidates will be assumed to be starting their studies in October 2021 unless there are exceptional circumstances approved by LAHP and the HEI.
