I am delighted to tell you that BU has been awarded the AHRC Block Grant Partnership: Capacity Building Scheme grant that we applied for early this year. The final numbers are given below:
Archaeology – 2x PhD studentships (one for 2012 and one for 2013)
Film, Digital and Media Production – 1x PhD studentships (one for 2011) and 4 professional Preparation Masters (2 in 2011, 1 in 2012 and 2013)
History – 1x PhD studentships (one for 2011)
This is a fantastic achievement and many congratulations are due to everyone. This was a collaborative venture between Applied Science and the Media School led by Kate Welham, but thanks are also due to the whole team: Neil White, Fiona Knight, John Fletcher and Hugh Chignell. Not only is this a great illustration of the power of cross School collaboration but significantly allows us to apply for further block grants down the line. Fantastic stuff!!!!!
