London Arts & Humanities Partnership

The London Arts and Humanities Partnership has up to 80 PhD studentships available for postgraduate students applying for a doctoral programme in the arts and humanities at one of the three partner institutions: King’s, UCL and the School of Advanced Study. Subject to availability, these awards will cover:

  • tuition fees for a maximum of three years at the Home/EU rate
  • annual maintenance grant or allowance (stipend)

Before applying for a LAHP studentship you must have already applied for admission, LAHP strongly recommends that you submit your admissions application before Friday 16th January 2015.

If you have already commenced doctoral study, you may apply for funding for the remainder of your study, providing that, at the start of the AHRC award (September 2015), you will have at least 50% of the period of study remaining.

LAHP studentships are open to UK and EU students who meet the AHRC’s residency requirements. EU students are eligible to apply for LAHP funding on exactly the same basis as UK students. LAHP expects to make full awards (fees and maintenance) to successful EU candidates in 2015.

Your research topic must be within the subject areas covered by the AHRC. LAHP encourages cross-supervision between the partner universities; please speak to the supervisors or departments about the possibilities available.

Full eligibility criteria and more information about the application procedure can be found on the London Arts & Humanities Partnership website.
