CHASE AHRC studentship scheme (2020)

The University of Sussex is a member of the CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Successful applicants will have their PhD tuition fees paid, and will receive a stipend to cover living expenses (currently £15,009 for 2019-20). They will also have access to further funds for research expenses. They will benefit from research and practical expertise available across all the CHASE institutions via existing research networks, and the twice yearly Encounters conference.
