Sussex Research Hive

Interested in being a Hive Scholar? 

Each year we appoint 3 Sussex doctoral researchers who have the creativity, enthusiasm and initiative to develop the Library's Research Hive. 

The next Scholarship will run from September 2023 to the end of July 2024 and further information about the application process will be available in June 2023.  The scholarship attracts a bursary of £3575 (supported by SAGE Publications). 


  • What is the Research Hive?

    The Sussex Research Hive is the Library's designated area for researchers, open to all doctoral researchers and research staff. It provides private study areas, bookable meeting rooms and space for discussion and collaborative work.

    It is located on the top floor of the Library and researchers will need to scan their Library cards to gain entry.

  • Partnership with SAGE

    SAGE Publications have given funding to support both the Research Hive and the Sussex Research Hive Scholar programme, supporting the Library's innovative work in engaging with the research community at Sussex.

    The Research Hive Scholars contribute to the SAGE Perspectives blog

  • Research Hive Scholars

    Three Research Hive Scholars support the space, engaging with researchers at the university to find out what they want from their community, planning events in response and fostering a supportive network here at Sussex.
