Co-led with Coventry University, we expect to allocate up to 7 Race XChange Scholarships, awarded to PhD applicants developing leading research on improving access and participation for minority ethnic students in postgraduate research in the UK.
These studentships will enable successful applicants to develop leading research on improving access and participation for minority ethnic students in postgraduate research in the UK. Our aim is to build and sustain an innovative research cluster comprising doctoral students who are developing their own individual research into broadly related themes, including:
These are broad themes that can encompass diverse and innovative individual doctoral research projects. The cluster’s research will address gaps in current knowledge, test interventions and develop theories of change. The aim is to have sustainable practical impact on minority ethnic students in postgraduate research, improvements from HEIs on how to better support Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority postgraduate researchers and dismantle institutional racial barriers and to lead to future research. There is an expectation that all proposals will include some element of an intersectional analysis within the application, hence an incorporation of structural analysis as well as lived experience as a primary focus.
