New PhD Scholarship Funding Success!

Strathclyde Law School is delighted to announce that two of its PhD students have just won prestigious fully-funded Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) scholarships.

Meemi Matero and Ella Phillips beat off fierce competition from across the country to win the coveted awards.

Both students were advised and supported in the application process by their prospective academic supervisors as well as the Law School and wider HaSS Faculty. They will begin study in September.

Commenting on this latest funding success, Head of the Law School Prof Claire McDiarmid said:

This is fantastic news not only for Meemi and Ella, their supervisors, but the Law School as a whole.

Winning AHRC funding is incredibly competitive and a mark of the highest esteem. This latest success underlines the strength not only of our post-graduate applicants, but also of the quality and reputation of our academic supervisors.

Meemi Matero, whose PhD will be supervised by Dr Rebecca Zahn and Dr Emily Rose, will study the relationship between gender equality and parental leave policy.

Ella Phillips, whose PhD research examines the history of the regulation of sex work by adopting a law and literature methodology, will be supervised by the Law School’s Prof Jane Scoular together with Prof Kirstie Blair.
