The Stuart Hall Foundation is delighted to announce a new PhD scholarship for 2022 in collaboration with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Science at Queen Mary University London.

The SHF-QMUL HSS Principal’s Studentship will support PhD applicants (or current PhD students in their first year of study – or the first two years of a part-time programme) that are eligible to pay Home fees and that meet specific eligibility criteria.

There are no restrictions on areas of research/disciplines/Schools within which candidates for the SHF-QMUL HSS Principal’s Studentship intend to pursue their studies. As long as the eligibility criteria are met, students applying (or that are already enrolled in their first year) to any School within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences can also apply for the SHF-QMUL HSS Principal’s Studentship.

Studentships will be awarded in March 2022 to the most outstanding candidates in the Humanities and Social Sciences applying for a full-time or part-time PhD programme starting in Autumn 2022. Applications will also be considered from students who are currently in the first year of a full-time PhD programme, or the first two years of a part-time programme. In order to be considered for an award, applicants should have (or expect to have by the end of the 2021/22 academic year) a master’s degree or equivalent qualification in an appropriate field.

Awards are tenable for up to three years, and cover tuition fees and a maintenance stipend at the UKRI London rate (c. £17,609 p.a. full-time, £8,804 part-time).

The deadline for application is January 19th 2022. Further details about eligibility and how to apply can be found here.
