The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is a Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The College is responsible for the distribution of AHRC-funded doctoral studentships for these universities and for the coordination of a doctoral training programme.  

WRoCAH has around 50 AHRC studentships that will be awarded through open competition. 

Students can make one application for funding through the open competition at either Leeds, Sheffield or York. Projects are welcome from all departments, not just Arts & Humanities, so long as the research falls within the remit of the AHRC.

The studentship application form and the Guidance Notes for Applicants are available from the WRoCAH website.

To be eligible to apply for funding, applicants must have applied for a PhD programme within their desired department. You can find out more about the department process here

The final closing deadline for funding applications is 5pm GMT on Wednesday, 27th January 2021

If you have any questions about applying for a WRoCAH studentship in the Department of Archaeology then contact Dr Kevin Kuykendall (k.l.kuykendall@sheffield.ac.uk)
