The Stuart Hall Foundation is pleased to continue its partnership with the School of Social Sciences at the University of Manchester to offer a studentship for a PhD candidate starting in September 2024.

The Stuart Hall PhD Scholarship will be awarded to one student in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Manchester for a PhD starting in September 2024 and will cover fees and a stipend. The scholarship can be held in any of the 8 Departments within the School of Social Sciences. It is expected that the award-winner will be working in an interdisciplinary area of study focused on one of Stuart Hall’s many areas of interest: cultural studies, race, ethnicity and inequalities.

Potential applicants should first apply to the Department of their choice for a PhD place, and will then be advised whether they can make a further application for this scholarship. See the website for information on the relevant Departments and how to apply for a PhD.
