The AHRC supports high-quality PhD students working in the best research and training environments. These students will form the next generation of researchers and skilled professionals. We offer a number of funding opportunities, which support PhD students’ study, training and development in a variety of ways.
Our block grant awards are given to universities, or consortia of universities, which recruit PhD students to AHRC-funded places. We do not fund students directly; prospective students should contact the institution at which they wish to study.
Collaborative awards offer the opportunity for a PhD student to work with a non-academic partner, and to build employment skills. Placements and internships provide unique access to resources and contacts.
