Students may propose topics under any of these headings.
WRoCAH has around 48 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.
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, 23 January 2019.
You are encouraged to discuss your application with a potential supervisor before making an application. For further details of specific staff interests, see:
