AHRC PhD funding opportunity

An information session will be held, Thursday 11 October 2018, for potential and existing PhD students who may be eligible for Arts and Humanities Research Council (ARHC) Scholarships.

  The AHRC provides funding to support postgraduate doctoral studentships and training in Scotland through a consortium, which includes the Universities of Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, St Andrews, Stirling, Strathclyde and Glasgow School of Art.

Within this scheme, the School of Divinity will consider applications for awards for 2019-20, under the Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) scheme, in the subject areas:

  • Religious Studies
  • Theology.

Are you eligible?

You may be eligible if you are a well-qualified, UK or EU student and:

  • either an existing PhD student of the School of Divinity no more than half-way through your 3-year full-time or 6 year part-time PhD programme as of 30 September 2019
  • or have accepted a conditional offer of a PhD place in the School with effect from September 2019.

With completed applications due by 19 November, and ‘notifications of intent’ by 14 November, you are strongly advised to find out more right away.
