Block Grant Partnerships 2008

Block Grant Partnerships (BGPs) are awards made to Research Organisations (ROs) for an allocation of postgraduate studentships in specific subject areas and schemes (i.e. Masters or Doctoral). The allocations are for 5 cohorts of students, commencing with students beginning their postgraduate study in the 2009-10 academic year.

The studentship places will be advertised by the RO on an annual basis (these may vary from year to year depending on their allocation). The organisation will shortlist candidates based on open competition and shortlisted students will be nominated to AHRC. All students must meet our eligibility criteria. AHRC plays no part in the assessment and selection of students so if you are a student you need to contact the organisation directly to find out about their selection processes.

A list of organisations (PDF, 63KB) that have a BGP award is available, along with a summary of the total studentships (Excel, 19KB) offered under the BGP awards by scheme and subject. The first round of the BGPs ensured stability of arts and humanities disciplines, in the context of previous AHRC funding patterns.
