2016 WRoCAH Networks – Call for Proposals now OPEN

networksThe White Rose studentships initiative was set up in 1997 to encourage collaboration between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.  Since 2005 the studentships have been awarded as networks to promote collaboration across the three institutions.

Under this scheme, WRoCAH has funding for TWO Networks for start in October 2016 and bids are invited from groups of academics for doctoral research networks in the Arts and Humanities.

The deadline for applications is Friday 4 March 2016.

Groups of six academics (2 from each White Rose University) can bid for funding for an themed doctoral student network which would be constructed from 3 students, one at each White Rose university, each with a main supervisor at their home institution and a co-supervisor at one of the other institutions, ensuring parity of involvement across White Rose.

Non-traditional Arts and Humanities departments may form part of a Network provided the overall theme fits under the scope of Arts & Humanities research as defined by the AHRC.

With the increasing focus on developing and maintaining meaningful relationships with non HEI partner organisations, this year we are inviting bids which embrace external partnership working. Each network must have an overall research theme and each must include at least one non-HEI external partner. The partner(s) may each be linked with specific studentships, or act in support of the network as whole.

Students would be full members of WRoCAH, with access to all the additional funding opportunities offered by the College.
