  • Funding: Varies

WRoCAH funding includes a full fee waiver at the home rate, and a stipend at the UKRI rate. They have around 45 AHRC studentships that will be awarded through open competition.

You 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 and Humanities, so long as the research falls within the remit of the AHRC.


Open to International (including EU) and UK (home) students.

Open to students in the Department of History of Art.

To be eligible to apply for funding, you must have applied for a PhD programme at one of Leeds, Sheffield or York.

You must apply to your chosen department first in order to receive the 9-digit university number for your WRoCAH application. We recommend that you submit your application to York a minimum of four weeks before the closing date.
