Looking for PhD funding? WRoCAH competition for PhD studentships starting in October 2021 is now open!

Posted on 10 November 2020

The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is a Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The College is responsible for the distribution of AHRC-funded doctoral studentships for these universities and for the coordination of a doctoral training programme.

WRoCAH has around 50 AHRC studentships that will be awarded through open competition.

Students can make one application for funding through the open competition at either Leeds, Sheffield or York. Projects are welcome from all departments, not just Arts & Humanities, so long as the research falls within the remit of the AHRC.

The studentship application form, the Guidance Notes for Applicants and details of how to apply are only available from the WRoCAH website. Please read the details very carefully, as the application process may vary for the Collaborative Doctoral Awards with an earlier deadline for expressions of interest.

To be eligible for funding, applicants for all types of WRoCAH AHRC Studentships must have applied for a PhD programme in the Department.  

The final closing deadline for ALL funding applications is 5pm GMT on Wednesday, 27th January 2021
