If you are looking for scholarship funding to study for a PhD in the Arts & Humanities all the details can be found below.

Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership

AHRC Midlands4Cities PhD funding for UK and International Applicants

The AHRC-funded Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C DTP) brings together eight leading universities across the Midlands to support the professional and personal development of the next generation of arts and humanities doctoral researchers. M4C is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University of Warwick, Coventry University, University of Leicester, De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.

Through our Open Doctoral and Collaborative Doctoral Awards Midlands4Cities will fund and support outstanding research for 109 doctoral researchers across the breadth of Arts and Humanities starting in October 2022.

There are 93 PhD studentships available through an open competition and M4C is also awarding 16 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) which provide diverse and unique project opportunities with national, regional, and local partner organisations. UK, EU, and International applicants are eligible for both routes for 2022 entry. Further details on the funding provided are available on the M4C website.

The deadline for AHRC funding applications is 12 January 2022 - 12.00 hours (UTC+0). Applicants must also have applied for a place to study at one of the eight M4C universities. For full details of eligibility, funding, research supervision areas and CDA projects, and for dates of our November application writing workshops, please visit http://www.midlands4cities.ac.uk or contact enquiries@midlands4cities.ac.uk 

Wolfson Foundation Scholarships

Warwick are pleased to announce that we have four prestigious Wolfson Foundation Scholarships to offer to the very best PhD applicants for an October 2022 start. Wolfson scholarships support doctoral study in History, Literature and Language subjects.

Wolfson scholarships are for three years full time or approximately six years part time. The level of award for applicants starting in October 2022 will be £30,250 per annum (full time, or pro-rata at 60% for part time) for three years. Fees and research costs must be met from the award. UK and international applicants are welcomed. The scholarship can only be used to pay for the home level of fees, not the international level of fees. The shortfall can usually be paid for by agreement with your department, but this cannot always be guaranteed. If you are offered a Wolfson Scholarship, this will be made clear at the time of the offer. Note, Wolfson do not fund applicants who have already started their PhD.

How to apply

Almost all our Wolfson applicants are also eligible to apply for a Midlands4Cities scholarship and we will automatically consider all our subject-eligible M4C applicants for a Wolfson scholarship. If you wish to be considered for a Wolfson Scholarship, please apply for a M4C scholarship. There is no separate application and no need to ask to be considered; all eligible applications will automatically be entered for the Wolfson competition. If you are ineligible to apply for a M4C scholarship, please get in touch with us at cadre at warwick dot ac dot uk to discuss how you can apply for a Wolfson Scholarship; we will only consider a separate application if you are ineligible for a M4C scholarship.

CADRE Scholarships

Some years we have CADRE scholarships to award. Because these are linked to our M4C scholarships, the number is unknown until the outcome of the M4C competition has been decided. If we are in a position to offer CADRE scholarships, these will be offered to the best of our M4C applicants. There is no separate application, if you apply for a M4C scholarship, you will automatically be considered for a CADRE scholarship if we offer any for a 2022 start. If you are ineligible to apply for a M4C scholarship, please get in touch with us at cadre at warwick dot ac dot uk to discuss how you can apply for a CADRE Scholarship; we will only consider a separate application if you are ineligible for a M4C scholarship.

A CADRE scholarship is awarded for 3.5yrs at UKRI home fees and stipend rates. UK and international applicants are welcomed. The scholarship can only be used to pay for the home level of fees, not the international level of fees. The shortfall can usually be paid for by agreement with your department, but this cannot always be guaranteed. If you are offered a CADRE Scholarship, this will be made clear at the time of the offer.
