About the Fellowships
The HRC Doctoral Fellowships are intended to enhance the winners' work on their PhDs. They can use their research budget for all reasonable expenses related to their PhD research. The conference budget is spent on organising a one-day conference on a topic close to the area of their dissertation, bringing together scholars working in their field.
