The School of History at St Andrews invites incoming PhD students to apply for studentships funded by either the AHRC or the University.  The number of scholarships available, and their value, has not yet been finalised but it is thought at this stage to be considerable. Updates will be posted here.

Scholarships will be distributed on a competitive basis, and the only criterion will be academic quality.  The School will base its decisions on the materials supplied when you apply to study as a PhD student.

In order to be considered in the scholarship competition, you must have submitted your PhD application *and had it accepted* before *Friday 10 January 2014*. The School of History recommends you apply as early as possible.  You must also e-mail [email protected] indicating that you wish to be considered for the scholarships, and declaring whether or not you are eligible for the AHRC awards.

St Andrews is home to the ‘Publishing the Philosophical Transactions’ project, a long-established Institute for Environmental History, and a brand-new Institute of Intellectual History. It will be hosting the 2014 meeting of the British Society for the History of Science (CFP just out!).
