Exciting new opportunities for funding of PhD research at University

2012 President’s Doctoral Scholar Awards: School of Arts, Histories

The University of Manchester has launched a further £2.5m investment
in PhD training with the creation of the President’s Doctoral Scholar
(PDS) Awards. These awards are open to all nationalities and research

The Faculty of Humanities proposes to make around 40 PDS awards, which
will take two forms:

[A] 20 or more awards to the top AHRC/ESRC applicants: these awards
will provide tuition fees, the research council stipend (£13,590 in
2011-12), and an additional stipend of £1K.

[B] Around 20 further PDS awards, covering tuition fees (home/EU or
international, as appropriate) and the equivalent of the research
council stipend (£13,590 in 2011-12).

Category A awards will be awarded competitively to the best candidates
from any of the schools in the Faculty.

Category B awards are devolved to Schools. The School of Arts,
Histories and Cultures and the School of Languages, Linguistics and
Cultures, which will form a single School with effect from September
2012, will together make five such awards. Successful candidates will
be chosen by open competition among all students holding offers of
places on doctoral programmes in either of the two Schools. These
awards will carry limited teaching duties.

School by 15 February 2012 at the latest.
