28 Aug New funding for Essex doctoral students announced
A successful doctoral training programme supporting the next generation of arts and humanities researchers in the south-east has been awarded funding for a further five years.
The Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-east England (CHASE) – of which University of Essex is a member – has successfully bid for funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
One of ten AHRC Doctoral Training Partnerships awarded across the UK, CHASE will support over 50 doctoral studentships each year for five years, including a number of Collaborative Doctoral Awards with a range of partner organisations. The new awards will be advertised in October 2018 to start in October 2019.
Dr Matthew Grant from our Department of History worked on the bid, which was co-ordinated by the University of Sussex.
