Plans for a new round of Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) have been launched by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Designed to provide world-class training opportunities for arts and humanities doctoral students in the UK, this new round of DTPs will commence in 2018 and provide studentships that begin in October 2019.
Research organisations, based in the UK, that are interested in helping to deliver the scheme should look to form a consortium of at least two organisations. To meet the key criteria for DTP2, organisations will be required to focus on excellent training, championing inter-disciplinarity and deepening collaboration with the voluntary, public and commercial sectors.
The Arts and Humanities Research Council is the largest UK funder of postgraduate training in the arts and humanities.
Research organisations delivering the Doctoral Training Partnerships will make the decisions about tailored studentship awards based on the needs of each student.
Any consortium of research organisations that are interested in applying for a Doctoral Training Partnership need to submit a statement of intent by the 13th April 2017. Early in 2017, the AHRC will be running a series of town hall meetings and surgeries to discuss the schemes in more detail. A research organisation can only be involved in one application. Therefore, if you’re forming a consortium or have been asked to join one then you must inform RKEO by 31st January 2017. Please contact Jo Garrad, RKEO Funding Development Manager.
More information and guidelines on the Doctoral Training Partnerships 2 Call can be found on the AHRC website.
