IHR Doctoral Fellowships
The Institute of Historical Research administers Doctoral Fellowships in History.
These fellowships are for PhD students to complete a doctorate, and are drawn from two sources: the Royal Historical Society and the Scouloudi Foundation.
The Fellowships are intended as writing-up awards for those who can make a clear argument about the need for additional time beyond the three years of doctoral study (or equivalent in the case of part-time or international students with longer programmes of study). They will be awarded to doctoral students who are engaged in the completion of a doctorate in history (broadly defined) and who will have completed at least three years of full-time or four years of part-time research on their doctoral programme (and not more than four years’ full-time or six years’ part-time) at the beginning of the academic year in which the awards will be held. Adjustments to these timings will be made for international degrees, which may be longer in duration. Fellowships will be tenable for six months or one year. Applicants must make a clear case for why they require the additional time, particularly if they are requesting a full year rather than six months.
