This Project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars will receive maintenance costs at Research Council rates and tuition fees at the rate for UK/EU students. In 2019/2020 the maintenance grant for full-time students was £15,002.99 per annum. International applicants who can pay the difference between the Home and International Fees would also be welcome to apply.
