Funding Success for Archaeology PGR Students!
Congratulations to the many Archaeology students who have succeeded in securing funding for their PhD research.
Four of our students have secured funding from the White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH). The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is a Doctoral Training Partnership between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. It provides AHRC-funded studentships for over 50 students each year to undertake doctoral study at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield or York.
Two more of our Archaeology students have been awarded funding through the University of Sheffield, through the Doctoral Academy and University Prize funding schemes
Doctoral Academy and/or Faculty Scholarship awards are awarded on a competitive basis and support the very best postgraduate research students.
The University Prize Scholarships are awarded to the very best PhD applicants, and is open to all applicants in all subjects.
