News | Posted on Wednesday 22 November 2023

Looking for PhD funding in Arts and Humanities? The WRoCAH competition for PhD studentships starting in October 2024 is now open.

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

WRoCAH have a number 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 and Humanities, so long as the research falls within the remit of the AHRC.

The studentship application form and the Guidance Notes for Applicants are available from the WRoCAH website. Please contact your prospective supervisor if you have any questions or need support with the application process. Questions can also be sent to law-pgr-admin@york.ac.uk

Applicants will first be considered by the department and then nominated for further consideration in the application process. To facilitate this, you must have applied for your PhD programme by Thursday 4 January 2024, 5pm BST. You must also indicate on your application your intention to apply for funding from the WRoCAH AHRC.
