At the University of Bradford our vision is a world of inclusion and equality of opportunity, where people want to, and can, make a difference. We place equality and diversity, inclusion, and a commitment to social mobility at the centre of our mission and ethos. In working to make a difference we are committed to addressing systemic inequality and disadvantages experienced by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students.

We recognise the importance and the benefits to research quality that come from diverse perspectives, and from belonging to a diverse research community.   Therefore, as part of our Brad-ATTAIN initiative to increase diversity and inclusion among our PGR community, the University of Bradford is offering fully funded PhD studentships for UK candidates who self-identify as being from a Black, Asian or Ethnic Minority background.

Eligibility

  • Open to candidates who self-identify as being from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background, and have UK ‘home’ student status.

Under sections 158-159 of the Equality Act 2010, positive action can be taken where members of protected groups are under-represented. At Bradford our data show that people from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic groups who are UK nationals are significantly under-represented at postgraduate researcher level. This this initiative offers targeted support for these students.

These are lawful measures designed to address systemic and structural issues which result in under-representation of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic students in PGR study.

Funding notes:

This project has full funding for UK students, which will cover tuition fees, a tax-free stipend of £18,622 per year for living costs, and a Research Support Grant.
