The University of Glasgow is part of the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities Doctoral Training Partnership. This is a consortium of ten 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, Highlands and Islands, St Andrews, Stirling, Strathclyde, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland 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.
