Arts and Humanities Research Council

From 2014 AHRC will be directing the majority of its postgraduate funding into Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs). DTPs are block grant awards made to either individual Research Organisations (ROs), or consortia of ROs, to support postgraduate studentships across the breadth of the AHRC’s subject remit. DTPs provide innovative training environments for doctoral level research, with the opportunity for PhD students to undertake broader training or development opportunities, such as language learning, overseas research visits, or placements with non-academic partners. AHRC will be funding a number of Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) in order to complement the Doctoral Training Partnerships scheme, and provide further capacity for postgraduate funding in priority areas: Design, Modern Languages and Heritage.

Studentship Funding

Studentship funding at Glasgow is allocated via the Scottish Graduate School for the Arts and Humanities. Please bear in mind that students need to be nominated by the University at which they intend to study to in order to apply for the funding.  There will also be a separate (but similar) application process direct to the University as all students must complete the online application process to be considered for admission to a doctoral programme. Please review the relevant websites carefully as it is often necessary to have an offer of admission in order to apply for funding.
