AHRC Doctoral Training Programme Scotland 2017/18

AHRC Doctoral Training Programme Scotland 2017/18

The University of Glasgow is part of a consortium of eight Higher Education institutions which has been awarded funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support postgraduate studentships and training in the Arts and Humanities in Scotland. Under the Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) scheme, the consortium - comprised of the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh, St Andrews, Stirling, Strathclyde and Glasgow School of Art - will consider applications for doctoral studentship awards in the majority of Arts and Humanities subjects.

Applicants should apply to their preferred institution. Following an internal selection process, each institution will nominate a number of applications to the Scottish Graduate School for the Arts and Humanities (SGSAH) who will make the final decisions on awards across the consortium. Further information on the selection process can be found on the SGSAH website.


Eligibility criteria:

  • In order to be nominated for a scholarship, applicants must hold an unconditional or conditional offer of a place on a PhD degree programme in one of a specified range of disciplines. Further details of disciplines and the Admissions application process are available using these links.
  • Applicants must not be holding another full Scholarship for the 2017/18 academic session. Applicants holding a part scholarship (e.g. fees only or stipend only) may still be considered.
  • Only Home and EU students are eligible to apply. IMPORTANT NOTE: As things currently stand, EU students are eligible to apply for fees-only support for an award beginning in October 2017. At the time of writing (late September 2016) the RCUK’s formal position is that ‘Future funding arrangements for EU students will be determined as part of the UK’s discussions on its future relationship.’ We will publish any additional information as soon as we receive it.
  • Both new and continuing, full-time and part-time students may apply. In the case of continuing students, restrictions do apply. Please refer the the Guidance Notes for Applicants for details.

How do I apply?
Students wishing to be considered for a Scholarship should complete a Scholarship application form. Please ensure that you read the Guidance Notes for Applicants carefully before attempting the application form.
