AHRC funding for Doctoral Research in Music at the University of Leeds

November 11th, 2014

The White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities (WRoCAH) will be awarding over 300 AHRC PhD studentships over a five year period to excellent UK/EU research students in the arts and humanities. The School of Music, University of Leeds therefore invites applications from students intending to pursue either thesis-based studies, or practice-led research where a commentary or smaller thesis supports a portfolio of recorded performances or compositions.

As Sarah Mawby, the current holder of an AHRC award from WRoCAH, confirms, ‘This is a fantastic opportunity; in addition to the annual stipend and full fee coverage, there are also additional avenues of funding which successful applicants can apply for, and the 1-month internship as part of the award was extremely useful.’
