their competitions for research studentships to start in October 2016.
We invite colleagues in UK Universities with research interests across
the Arts and Humanities to approach us to explore possible topics for
these Collaborative Doctoral studentships for applications in this, or
future years.
The twelve different Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships, representing
more than 35 Museums, Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Heritage
Organisations across the UK with track records of supporting doctoral
research to support their work.
Through the Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme these
organisations run competitions to choose fully funded AHRC research
studentships to support. Each studentship will be jointly supervised by
a member of staff in a University and someone in the partner
organisation as a Collaborative Doctoral Award. The topic of the
research has to support the work and objectives of the partner
organisation, and the student will benefit from participating in joint
training and other opportunities offered by consortium of CDP holders.

studentships and their priorities, please link to their individual
websites/email contact details listed on our joint  website:
We all share a similar timetable for our studentship competitions with
a deadline for applications by November 27th 2015. Final decisions will
be made by the end of January 2016.
