We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with the Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE) to support at least two studentships a year for black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates from the UK to undertake doctoral research in arts and humanities. Applicants with an interest in the work and legacy of Stuart Hall are particularly encouraged. All applicants will also be entered into the general studentship competition.

As well as the usual benefits of a CHASE studentship, recipients of this award will benefit from working with SHF to develop their career and research profile. They will enjoy privileged access to the work of the Foundation be able to engage with and contribute to its resources and networks, including the annual gathering of Stuart Hall Foundation Scholars and Fellows. 

This is a positive action initiative under the Equality Act 2010.

These studentships are available to start in October 2024.

About CHASE 

CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support doctoral research through funded studentships and training activities. Together we are seeking to shape a future in which the values and dispositions of scholarship in the arts and humanities – inventiveness, craft, rigour, intuitive and counter-intuitive insight – can flourish alongside developments in creative practice, digital technologies and media forms.

CHASE brings together 8 leading institutions engaged in collaborative research activities including an AHRC doctoral training partnership. These are the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, Kent and Sussex, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Goldsmiths, University of London, Birkbeck, University of London and SOAS, University of London.

Since 2014, CHASE has been awarded two block grants from AHRC totalling over £34m, and its members have committed more than £16m in doctoral funding. This has supported more than 500 doctoral researchers, and provided enhanced opportunities for all arts and humanities researchers.
