Scholarships & funding opportunities
MRes/MPhil Interdisciplinary Excellence Awards 2022-23
These master's-level (MRes or MPhil) bursaries are being funded by Research and Knowledge Exchange Services, to facilitate applications to the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)'s Doctoral Training Partnership Scotland, the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities (SGSAH).
The awards are intended to promote interdisciplinary collaboration: preference will be given to research projects with two supervisors from different disciplinary backgrounds, who may, or may not, be located within the same department or faculty. We encourage innovative collaborations within the arts and humanities, and with colleagues in social science, science and engineering.
This competition provides the Home postgraduate research student fee for 1 year (Full-time) or 2 years (Part-time).
International candidates are welcome to apply but they must be able to demonstrate that they can fund the difference between the Home fee and the International fee (approximately £11,000 for 2022/23 entry).
Students undertaking an MRes must start their studies on 1st October 2022. This start date cannot be deferred.
