This scholarship is being offered to work on the Leverhulme trust funded project ‘An Antique Land; Geology, Philology and the Making of the Indian Subcontinent, 1830-1920’, (pdf), a research project directed by Dr Pratik Chakrabarti at the School of History, University of Kent.

The Scholarship

The scholarship is part of three year project funded by the Leverhulme trust at the School of History. This scholarship is available to UK, EU and overseas students and will cover tuition fees (EU rate) plus a maintenance bursary of approximately £13,590 per year.

The scholarship will be offered for one year in the first instance, renewable for a maximum of three years, subject to satisfactory academic performance.

Applicant Specification

The scholarship competition is open to postgraduate research applicants who have applied for or are applying to the School of History for entry in the academic year starting January 2013. (please visit Kent’s postgraduate pages for comprehensive information about how to apply for postgraduate research study).

Candidates must hold a master’s degree (merit or distinction) in a relevant subject.

Application Process

In addition to completing an application for postgraduate research study, applicants for this School of History supported, project-related University of Kent 50th Anniversary Scholarship must provide:

  • A copy of their CV.
  • A covering letter explaining why they are interested in the project and why they believe they would be well-placed to carry it out. This letter must include the applicant’s full name, address, telephone number and email address.

Where available, the School will take two academic references for each scholarship applicant from their application for study. If an applicant has not requested two academic references in their application for study the covering letter should also include the names of two academic referees and their contact details (postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number).

If the applicant has ideas about how s/he would like to modify the project outline, s/he should explain this also in the letter. Candidates will neither be necessarily advantaged nor disadvantaged by proposing such a modification; the criterion for success will be the candidate’s suitability for the project in whatever form – original or modified – they propose to execute it.
