The BGP: Capacity Building Scheme was open to all Research Organisations that did not receive a BGP award. Awards were made for postgraduate studentships in specific subject areas and schemes (Doctoral, Research Preparation Masters and Professional Preparation Masters).
This scheme provides opportunities for doctoral students to gain first hand experience of work outside an academic environment. It supports collaborative research studentships based within partnerships between higher education institutions and organisations in the public, voluntary or private sectors.
This new call aims to support the development of innovative, collaborative training packages that will meet a range of capacity issues in the arts and humanities. It focuses on developing skills amongst students and Early Career Researchers for future careers in research and other contexts.
This scheme supports and encourages the placement of UK postgraduate students and early career researchers on short-term fellowships at overseas research institutions.
Full details of the terms and conditions of your award are detailed in the Student Funding Guide. Students with questions about their funding or award should contact their Research Organisation in the first instance.
The Block payment mechanism is the way the AHRC makes payments to Research Organisations.
