An annual PMC MA/MPhil Studentship is to be awarded to a UK-based student embarking on masters-level studies in the field of British art history. The studentship is part of the New Narratives set of funding opportunities designed to increase the diversity of perspectives among scholars within this field.

The studentship is an award of £32,000, and is designed to cover university fees and living costs.

As well as funding, recipients of the studentship will benefit from mentorship and guidance from Centre staff, and from the Doctoral Scholars and Early Careers Fellows elected under the same scheme.

The New Narratives scheme particularly welcomes applications from those who are under-represented within the academic field of the humanities in the UK, including, for example, black and minority ethnic individuals.
