Award Description

The College of Arts and Law is offering the Haywood Scholarship to an outstanding doctoral research candidate in History of Art.

Value of Award

The Haywood Scholarship provides for Home tuition fees and a small maintenance grant. As an EU/international student, you will receive a reduction in tuition fees equivalent to the Home rate if successful, plus a small maintenance grant. 

While it is hoped that the scholarship would be continued for three years, it will be subject to an annual review. 

Eligibility Criteria

This award is open to UK, EU or international applicants pursuing campus-based doctoral research in History of Art commencing in September 2023. Applications for funding can only be considered alongside an application to study. 

Applications are also open to current students with at least 50% of their programme of study remaining at the start of the award (excluding thesis awaited).  

How to Apply

Applicants for the Haywood should submit a standard PhD application to the University of Birmingham application portal. Please indicate in your personal statement that you would like to be considered for the Haywood Fellowship, and explain how you will participate in the research culture of the department: are there particular research strands in the Department or School that your project contributes towards? Are there Research Centres that you might like to be involved in? Some examples might be Midlands Art Papers, the Nineteenth-Century Centre, the Eighteenth-Century Centre, the Centre for Material Culture and Materialities.

Candidates applying for Midlands 4 Cities funding will automatically be considered for the Haywood Fellowship.
