2024 WRoCAH AHRC Studentship Competition is now open

The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is a Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The College 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 45 AHRC studentships that will be awarded through open competition across the three institutions of the White Rose consortium:  Leeds, Sheffield and York.  

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 & Humanities, so long as the research falls within the remit of the AHRC.  You will have to have applied for a place on the PhD programme at the Centre for Medieval Studies, and also complete the WRoCAH scholarship application form.  Details are here.

The application deadline for the 2024 WRoCAH AHRC Open Studentships Competition is 17:00 GMT on Wednesday 24th January 2024.
