Faculty of Arts Cross Disciplinary Research Scholarships (CDRS) - University of Leeds

  • Phd
  • Fully Funded
  • 10 March 2017

Two Faculty of Arts Cross Disciplinary Research Scholarships will be available for UK/EU/International students for doctoral study commencing in October 2017.

These scholarships have been created to meet a need for studentships for postgraduate research proposals that clearly cross two Schools within the Faculty of Arts.

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.


The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures (English, History, LCS, PRHS) Graduate School is seeking applicants that fulfil the following criteria:

  • Applicants MUST have submitted a research degree study application form and be in receipt of a Student ID Number.
  • Applicants MUST have submitted an application for a Faculty of Arts Cross Disciplinary Research Scholarship to their Lead School.
  • Applicants MUST have a named Supervisor in both their Lead and Partner Schools.
  • Applicants must hold a First Degree at undergraduate level equivalent to at least a UK Upper Second Class Honours degree.
  • Applicants whose first language is not English must meet the School’s English Language requirements (prior to or at registration).
  • These awards are not open to individuals who have already been awarded or are currently studying for a Doctoral degree.
