Each year, WRoCAH offers up to 50 studentships for UK and European Union students undertaking PhD research at either University of Leeds, University of Sheffield and University of York. This WRoCAH AHRC Competition Studentship provides approximately £14,296 for the successful applicants. Please apply this studentship award no later than 1 February 2017.
WRoCAH has funding for 50 studentships per year through the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Block Grant Partnerships scheme. WRoCAH offers a unique training scheme for doctoral researchers. Students will work with and learn with a cohort from across the three White Rose Universities. A range of additional funding schemes are available to successful applicants to support training activities, research data gathering, running events and undertaking knowledge exchange projects. A central feature of the WRoCAH training scheme is a month spent with an external organisation. Doctoral researchers will undertake a Researcher Employability Project with a partner organisation to develop key employability skills.
Awards will comprise UK/EU fees at Research Council rates and, for eligible students, a maintenance grant (£14,296 in 2016/7).
