The London Arts and Humanities Partnership is pleased to invite applications from outstanding candidates for AHRC-LAHP Collaborative Doctoral Awards for 2019/20 entry.
Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs) provide funding for doctoral students to work on a project in collaboration with an organisation outside higher education.
They are intended to encourage and develop collaboration and partnerships and to provide opportunities for doctoral students to gain first-hand experience of work outside the university environment. They enhance the employment-related skills and training available to the research student during the course of the award. Collaborative Doctoral Awards are not only a route into academia but also provide hands-on work experience in the cultural sector and transferrable skills.
The studentship includes a stipend at Research Council UK 2019/20 rates of £17,009 per annum (plus fees at home/EU rates) for three and half years. The awarded candidate will also be entitled to a £550 per annum stipend top-up. Studentships can be either full or part-time.
As a LAHP student, the successful candidate will have full access to the LAHP Doctoral Training Partnership development activities and networking opportunities, joining a cohort of about 90 students per year.
LAHP studentships are open to UK and EU students who meet the residency requirements as detailed on page 13 of the RCUK Conditions of Research Council Training Grants. Applications cannot be accepted from students liable to pay fees at the Overseas rate.
Candidates should hold a first-class or a good upper-second class Honours degree or equivalent, and would normally be expected to hold a Masters degree.
Full details of each project and the application process can be found on the LAHP website.
