£2.6m AHRC award funds 75 studentships
2 March 2009
The Arts and Humanities Research Council has awarded the University £2.6m to support postgraduate studentships.
The AHRC invited bids under the scheme last September and the results were published at the end of February. Professor Philip Esler, AHRC’s Chief Executive, praised Bristol’s ‘strategy and vision’ and welcomed the new Graduate School of Arts and Humanities (to be launched in the summer), which will administer the BGP award in the Faculty of Arts and assist in its application in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law.
The quality of Bristol’s doctoral training and supervision in these areas drew particular acclaim from the AHRC. The BGP award will support a wide spectrum of disciplines and research fields including Humanities, Law, Modern Languages, Performing Arts, Archaeology and the emerging Centre of Excellence in Deaf Studies.
