The award was one of 11 new Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and seven Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) announced by the AHRC.

The funding will be supplemented by a further contribution of £4m from the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York, and is testimony to the strength of the arts and humanities across the three Russell Group universities.

The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is responsible for the distribution of AHRC-funded studentships for these universities and for the coordination of a doctoral training programme.  From 2014 WRoCAH is able to offer over 50 AHRC studentships per year to candidates with a place for doctoral study at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield or York.

How to apply

Applicants for an AHRC studentship must have applied for a place and may only apply for funding at one of Leeds, Sheffield or York. The studentship application form and details of how to apply will be available only from the WRoCAH website in November.
