The AHRC-funded Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C) brings together eight leading universities across the Midlands, to support research students to become experts in their field and to employ their knowledge and skills in their career destinations.  

For 2024, the Stuart Hall Foundation (SHF) Scholarship at M4C will support up to two studentships a year for Black, Asian and Minoritised Ethnic candidates eligible for home fees to undertake doctoral research in arts and humanities.

As well as the usual benefits of an M4C studentship, successful applicants to the SHF/M4C Studentship will benefit from working with the Stuart Hall Foundation 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.

Details of the 2024 competition are available on the Midlands4Cities website ( Pre-application sessions for SHF studentship applications will take place in November and December. Details are available on the Midlands4Cities website.
