Funding Support

Deadline for Applications: 17.00 GMT, Wednesday 12 January 2022

The Department of Classics & Ancient History at Durham University invites applications for PhD studentships, through the AHRC-funded Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership.

The Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership runs an annual competition to select the best doctoral candidates and provide a comprehensive and attractive package of financial support over the duration of study. Successful candidates are also supported by an outstanding wealth of resources. For further information about both schemes and detailed guidance notes, visit the Northern Bridge website.

We hope also to be able to make awards through two other schemes: the Durham Doctoral Studentship (DDS) and the Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarship in the Humanities. Further information on these competitions will be posted here when available.

We welcome applications from outstanding candidates who can demonstrate evidence of academic excellence at both undergraduate and postgraduate level (or equivalent professional experience), as well as evidence of sufficient research skills to undertake the project. On the application for the Durham PhD programme, applicants will be asked if they wish to be considered for funding, and they should indicate their interest in the funding schemes to which they would like to apply. Please visit our Application Pages for more information about the process of applying for a place on our PhD programme, as well as a link to the online application portal.
