Up to 56 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 fifth round of Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) PhD Studentship awards. CHASE is one of 10 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 skills training and research.  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-funded students benefit from a supportive cohort environment, including biannual Encounters conferences.


Eligibility

There are residence requirements for research council funding for postgraduate research. These are based on the Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 and subsequent amendments.

Full award
Normally to be eligible for a full award a student must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship (with some further constraint regarding residence for education).

For further information regarding residence requirements, please see the regulations. These include further information, for example about refugees, migrant workers, residence for education and EEA nationals.

Fees only award
Students from EU countries other than the UK are generally eligible for a fees-only award. To be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU; in the same way as UK students must be ordinarily resident in the UK. Your eligibility for award will be determined on the basis of a fee status questionnaire issued by your institution.

For current students
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.
