Study and Research Funding

Researchers in the History of Medicine have many options when it comes to funding, and CHM has a strong track record of attracting external funding in a very competitive field. The Centre for the History of Medicine itself, the Department of History, the University of Warwick, and external funders such as the Wellcome Trust, AHRC, ESRC have individual schemes to support students at MA and PhD levels, and researchers at postdoctoral level. Please see the information below for further details of MA funding options, PhD funding options, and Postdoctoral funding options:

MA funding

Undergraduates and others interested in the MA are encouraged to contact the History of Medicine Director for more information. For 2021-2 this is Professor Mathew Thomson m dot thomson at warwick dot ac dot uk

There is also a useful, searchable list of all postgraduate funding available from the Graduate School.

PhD funding

  • The History Department supports applications for funding of PhDs in History of Medicine through university funding and applications to the Economic Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Midlands 4 Cities (M4C) Doctoral Traning Partnership. For information and funding deadlines please see the History Department's 'Funding for PG Study' pages.

There is also a useful, searchable list of all postgraduate funding available from the Warwick Doctoral College.

Postdoctoral funding

Research grant appplications for postdoctoral funding are subject to internal application procedures (within History and Research and Impact Services) and we therefore advise you to contact both the CHM Director and the Department (at HistoryResearch at warwick dot ac dot uk) well in advance for further information. For further funding options, important information and funding deadlines please see the History Department's 'Funding Opportunities' pages.
