PhD funding opportunities with Sheffield Archaeology!

Department of Archaeology is pleased to announce that various University funding schemes and WRoCAH competition for PhD studentships is now open!

Scholarships from the University of Sheffield and external sources are available for new UK, European Union, and International postgraduates to help cover tuition fees and living expenses. Applications are now being accepted to the two main funding schemes that support Sheffield Archaeology PhD students:

  • University of Sheffield Scholarships – a series of funding opportunities, including the Doctoral Academy Scholarships, provided via the University
  • WRoCAH AHRC Competition Studentships – The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is a Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. It is responsible for the distribution of AHRC-funded doctoral studentships for these universities and for the coordination of a doctoral training programme. WRoCAH is able to offer over 50 AHRC studentships per year to candidates with a place for doctoral study at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield or York. Applicants for an AHRC studentship must already have applied for a PhD programme at one of Leeds, Sheffield or York.
