We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C) to support one or two studentships a year for black, Asian and minority ethnic applicants to undertake doctoral research in arts and humanities. 

As well as the usual benefits of an M4C studentship, successful applicants will benefit from working with SHF to develop their career and research profile. Post holders will be able to engage with and contribute to the resources and networks of the Stuart Hall Foundation, including an annual gathering of Stuart Hall Foundation Scholars and Fellows, and privileged access to the work of the Foundation.

As director of Midlands4Cities, I am really excited by this new partnership with the Stuart Hall Foundation, especially given Professor Hall’s links with the Midlands. We hope that these Studentships will provide meaningful opportunities for students from under-represented communities, and challenge to and ways to improve our provision for post-graduate students.

Nicola Royan, Director, Midlands4Cities 

Details of the 2022/23 competition are available on the Midlands4Cities website ( Pre-application sessions for all M4C applicants are will take place on 12 and 19 November; we will offer pre-application sessions online for SHF studentship applications on 16 November and 23 November 1-2.
