The HRC offers a range of opportunities to arts and humanities postgraduates at York.



The HRC runs a Doctoral Fellowships competition for 3rd year PhD researchers and offers one-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to recent York doctoral graduates.

Jane Moody Scholarships

Named in memory of the HRC’s founding Director, the Jane Moody Scholarships provide funding for PhD students and recent PhD completers to learn new skills or work with external partners or communities that are new to them

The HRC is a wonderful place for sharing and celebrating research
