Supporting universities and consortia to develop careers

We offer funding opportunities to support PhD students’ study, training and development.

Our block grant awards are given to universities or university consortia that recruit PhD students to Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)-funded places.

If you are or plan to be a student, you should contact the relevant college or university.

We do not fund students directly.

Currently, opportunities are available through the following doctoral training grant schemes:

We are also supporting current students through these grant schemes:
