AHRC to open new Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships call for 2018

Date: 09/02/2018

The Arts and Humanities Research Council is to continue its scheme to expand PhD studentships to non-higher education institutions, with a new call in 2018.

First introduced in 2012, the Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme gives non-higher education institutions with a proven track record in postgraduate research the opportunity to manage PhD students, with a minimum of three studentships per year.

The new call will open in spring 2018 for awards starting in 2020 and closes on 13 September 2018. Previous award holders include both large individual organisations, such as the British Museum, as well as consortia involving smaller organisations, such as the BT Archives. This new call will be open to any non-higher education institution, on an individual or consortia basis who can meet the criteria.

The Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) scheme has supported around 250 studentships since 2012, with studentships beginning in 2013, and a further call was opened in 2014 with studentships starting in 2016.

An open meeting will be held in April 2018, giving organisations further details of the call and to flag any changes from the previous calls.  Further details of the call will also be made available on our website (www.ahrc.ac.uk).

Collaborative Doctoral Projects are delivered through partnerships with Higher Education Institution (HEI) based collaborators. CDP awards made under this call will cover three annual allocations of studentships starting in October 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Details of current CDP organisations, their calls for proposals and available studentships can be found on their website: www.ahrc-cdp.org.

The Arts and Humanities Research Council funds world-class, independent researchers in a wide range of subjects: history, archaeology, digital content, philosophy, languages, design, heritage, area studies, the creative and performing arts, and much more. This financial year the AHRC will spend approximately £98 million to fund research and postgraduate training, in collaboration with a number of partners. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits and contributes to the economic success of the UK but also to the culture and welfare of societies around the globe.
