The University of Kent is proud to be part of the Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE) which was awarded a £17 million Doctoral Training Partnership by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in October 2013. Our partners include The Courtauld Institute of Art, Goldsmiths College, the Open University, and the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, and Sussex. SOAS and Birkbeck College joined the consortium as associate members in 2014.
CHASE is one of only 11 UK AHRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnerships and the partners have committed an additional £10 million in studentship funding which will allow CHASE to provide AHRC awards to over 375 PhD students in the arts and humanities across the partner institutions over five years.
CHASE will offer students a wide range of exciting opportunities to gain professional experience, work across institutions and disciplines, and acquire advanced research skills. Further information is available from the CHASE website.
CHASE Studentship Selection Criteria in 2016 was based on the following:
1. Research proposal
2. Preparedness for research
3. Suitability of research environment
Students wishing to be considered for these scholarships must apply for a PhD place at the University. The deadline for applications will be published at a later date.
