Studentships at Kent
In 2010/11, the School of English at the University of Kent is offering six scholarships for doctoral study.
* Two Arts and Humanities Research Council Block Grant Partnership awards (AHRC BGPs)
* Four Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) studentships
Please see the University of Kent’s postgraduate funding pages (http://www.kent.ac.uk/scholarships/postgraduate/departmental/english.html) for financial details of the AHRC BGPs. The GTA studentships will be a grant of £16,000 over the period of registration, subject to satisfactory academic progress, including satisfactorily carrying out teaching and other duties. The grant will be paid in three instalments, £7,000 in year one, when the GTA will do no teaching, and two instalments of £4,500 in years 2 and 3, when teaching will be offered to the GTA to supplement their income. Tuition fees are to be paid by the student out of the grant element.
* Deadline for applications: 1st March 2010 (with interviews on 26th March)
