AHRC Doctoral Awards Scheme, The

Post  Admin on Mon Mar 01, 2010 2:44 am

The Doctoral Awards Scheme provides support for students undertaking doctoral study. Students should apply through this scheme even if their initial registration is as a probationary student or as an MPhil student. Doctoral awards provide support for up to three years of full-time study, or up to five years of part-time study, to enable you to pursue and complete a programme of doctoral research and gain a doctoral degree.


Awards in this competition fall into two categories:

A full award covers both the cost of tuition fees, up to the RCUK maximum, and a maintenance grant.
A fees-only award provides payment of tuition fees, up to the RCUK maximum, but not a maintenance grant.


To be eligible for a full award:

To be eligible for a full award, you must show that you have a relevant connection with the UK, usually through residence.
There has been a change to the guidance this year so that EU Nationals who have been in the UK in full time education for the 3 years prior to the start of the course, for which they are applying for an award, will also be eligible for a full award.

To be eligible for a fees-only award:

To be eligible for a fees-only award, you must have been ordinarily resident in the EU for the three years immediately preceding the start of the academic year in which your course will commence.

Academic criteria:

You must have been accepted by an HEI to undertake the doctoral research for which you are seeking funding.
You should also be a graduate of a recognised HEI, or an undergraduate expecting to graduate before 31 July 2008.
You should normally have, or be studying for, a Masters degree or similar qualification.
If you have already gained or completed the requirements of a doctoral degree in any subject however funded, you are not eligible to apply.
At the end of your AHRC award you must be in a position to receive a publicly recognised doctoral degree.
