Doctoral Scholarship

An annual PMC Doctoral Scholarship is to be awarded to a UK-based student embarking on doctoral studies in the field of British art history. The scholarship is of the New Narratives set of funding opportunities designed to increase the diversity of perspectives among researchers and students within the field of British art history.

This scholarship is an award of £32,000 per year for three years, and is designed to cover university fees and living costs.

As well as funding, recipients of the scholarship will benefit from mentorship and guidance from Centre staff, from members of the wider British art studies community and from the Early Career Fellows elected under this scheme. In turn, they themselves will be expected to provide guidance and mentorship to the recipients of the MA/MPhil Studentships.

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, individuals who identify as black, brown or people of colour.
