The University of Bristol is funding one PhD scholarship in the field of modern ‘South Asian Studies’ in the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law to start in September/October 2023.
Fees for Home or Overseas students will be fully discounted. Scholarships include a stipend at UKRI level, (the stipend rates for 2022-23 are £17,668) and a £2000 per annum contribution to Research and Travel costs. Fully funded stipends for international students do not cover additional costs like student visa fees, NHS sur-charges, or family requirements. These will each have to be covered individually. Scholarships are 4 years in duration.
The studentship is only available to applicants who apply with projects that are cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary in scope between the Humanities and Social Sciences. They will be co-supervised between two supervisors, one based in the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law, and one based in the School of Humanities (History, History of Art, English, or Religion and Theology) in the Faculty of Arts.
We particularly welcome international students from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan or Sri Lanka to apply for this scholarship.
Prospective students must identify and secure the written support of two supervisors - one from each of the two different Schools before they submit their application.
Please follow the admissions guidance for the primary subject of your PhD. You will be required to meet the eligibility requirements of your PhD programme and demonstrate promise for doctoral study. Please refer to the individual prospectus page of your primary subject for entry requirements.
In your application please mark that you would like to be considered for the ‘Arts and SSL South Asian Studies PGR Scholarship’ and in your project proposal explain how your project meets the South Asian Studies remit.
Deadline for applications: 12noon GMT on Monday 27 February 2023
A panel will decide the outcome of the scholarship by spring 2023
