Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Doctoral Studentships
Learn about funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support postgraduate studentships, training and support for postgraduate Research Students in the Arts and Humanities.
Eligibility and availability
- applicants must hold an unconditional or conditional offer a PhD degree programme
- applicants must not be holding another full scholarship for the 2021/22 academic session, though partial scholarship funding from elsewhere (e.g. fees only or stipend only) may still be considered
- applicants may be either new or continuing students (note that students entering their third year of full-time study, or fifth year of part-time study in 2021-22 are not eligible to apply)
- applicants already holding doctoral qualifications should not apply
- From the academic year 2021/22, the AHRC via SGSAH is offering awards to PhD researchers from around the world (the UK, the EU and International). All funded PhD students, whether UK, EU or International will be eligible for a full award – both a stipend to support living costs, and fees at the HEIs’ UK rate. SGSAH cannot cover international fees set by HEIs and can appoint up to a maximum of 30 percent of awards in total each year to international students (including those from EU countries).
