CHASE PhD Studentship Opportunity in American Studies

University of Kent - The Centre for American Studies

The Centre for American Studies invites applications for an AHRC PhD scholarship offered by CHASE, the Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England.

Since its foundation in 1973, The Centre for American Studies has developed a strong research culture that matches the commitment of the University of Kent to interdisciplinary study, as well as the mandate of American Studies to explore the US experience in innovative, ground-breaking ways.

We actively welcome PhD proposals which fit within our four interdisciplinary areas of research:

  • Space and Environment
  • Migration, Borders and the Transnational
  • Race, Gender, Indigeneity
  • Cultural Forms, Cultural Politics

Please see the Centre for American Studies’ website for a full list of academic staff and their research interests.


CHASE AHRC studentships are open to UK and EU students who meet the residency requirements set out in the RCUK Conditions of Research Council Training Grants.

For eligibility criteria for full awards please refer to the UK Council for International Student Affairs website.

Students from EU countries other than the UK are generally eligible for a fees-only award. To be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU, in the same way as UK students must be ordinarily resident in the UK.

At the current time, EU students are eligible for support from CHASE. Applicants from EU countries will be notified immediately of any change in status as a result of UK government policy.

All PhD applications received before the deadline will automatically be considered for the scholarship. Students can apply for the American Studies PhD here.
