The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is a Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. It 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 only one application for funding through the open competition for either a student-led or a collaborative project. 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 and details of how to apply for each type of studentship 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 at one of Leeds, Sheffield or York.
The final closing deadline for ALL funding applications is 5pm GMT on Wednesday, 29th January 2020
