AHRC-funded studentships at Royal Holloway: History and Historical Geography of British imperialism

Posted in Funding opportunities by harjant on February 10, 2010
Royal Holloway has an AHRC Block Grant award of 4 studentships in the areas of History and Historical/Cultural Geography.  These pay full fees and maintenance for three years leading to a PhD.  The Departments of Geography and History are world renowned centres of research, with large and lively communities of postgraduates.  Students have access to some of the richest facilities for historical research anywhere in the world: in addition to the College’s substantial library collections, there are the National Archives, British Library, libraries of the University of London and the Institute of Historical Research.  Royal Holloway also has an active interdisciplinary Postcolonial Research Group, which hosts researchers from across the world.

The AHRC research council studentships have the standard UK/EU qualification criteria.  Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and College studentships, as well as only fees only awards, for PhD research are also available.

Details of the awards are available from: http://www.rhul.ac.uk/graduate-school/AHRC_BGP/AHRC_index.html
