Scholarships and Bursaries

Information about scholarships and bursaries can be found on the Doctoral College's Scholarships and Funding pages. The most important schemes for potential History of Art students are:

AHRC Midlands4Cities Scholarships: these are open to Home/EU students and provide 3.5 years of funding covering fees and a maintenance grant at UKRI rates. Full details of how to apply can be found on the Midlands4Cities website.

Chancellor's International Scholarships: these are open to international research students (EU/overseas) and cover international fees and a maintenance grant at UKRI rates. Full details can be found here.

Wolfson Postgraduate Awards: these are scholarships awarded to outstanding candidates in History, Literature and Languages, and offer £30,250 p.a. (at 2022-23 rates) to cover fees, maintenance, research and training costs.


IMPORTANT: The demand for scholarships significantly outweighs the supply and the wording of your application is crucial. If you intend to apply for funding please contact either your potential supervisor or the Director of Graduate Studies, Prof. Michael Hatt, for further advice.


The competition for PhD scholarships from the AHRC Midlands4Cities consortium for UK/EU applicants is now open.
