Application for WRoCAH AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award (CDA) Studentships is a TWO stage process.

STAGE 1 – Expressions of interest to the project supervisor

Deadlines and methods for EoIs MAY VARY between projects so please read each advertisement carefully so you are clear about the deadlines. After EoIs are received, students may be called to interview. The supervisory team will then choose a student with whom they will work up a funding application. You may or may not be required to complete a programme application for a place of study as part of the EoI process.

STAGE 2 – Preparation of funding application for WRoCAH

Funding applications must be student-led and this is where you will have the opportunity to demonstrate how you would intend to shape the project. The student chosen in Stage 1 will work with the supervisory team to prepare their funding application for the deadline of 17:00 GMT on Wednesday 29 January 2020.
