Up to 75 Arts and Humanities studentships available from CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership
The Consortium of the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE) invites applications for its second round of Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) PhD Studentship awards. CHASE is one of 11 Doctoral Training Partnerships in the UK awarded funding by the AHRC.
What is on offer?
CHASE Studentships are for PhD-level study only and successful applicants will have their fees paid, as well as receiving a stipend to cover living expenses (where eligible, see below) and access to further funds for research expenses. In addition, CHASE-funded students have the opportunity of doing a placement with one of our partner organisations, to apply research skills in a work environment.
CHASE AHRC studentships are open to UK and EU students who meet the residency requirements set out in the RCUK Conditions of Research Council Training Grants.
If you have already started doctoral study, you may still be eligible for an AHRC studentship funding providing that, at the start of the AHRC award, you will have at least 50% of your period of study remaining.
