Research Student Scholarships

The University offers a range of funding opportunities for research students, which include dedicated funding streams and access to funding sources available to other students.

Roehampton PhD scholarship

TECHNE AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership 2019

We invite applications from outstanding candidates for our TECHNE AHRC doctoral studentships. Studentships are awarded in departments across the university, but the NCRCL will consider applications for projects related to children’s literature or creative writing for children. Projects drawing on our archival holdings—such as the Richmal Crompton archive—will be especially welcome. For more information and details of how to apply, please see our Graduate School pages:

Postgraduate Research Studentships – Jacqueline Wilson Scholarship 2019

In addition to TECHNE studentships, we will award our annual Jacqueline Wilson Scholarship to a candidate of the highest calibre. Applicants for TECHNE awards will be considered automatically for the Jacqueline Wilson Scholarship, so please apply for a TECHNE studentship in the first instance. Candidates who do not secure TECHNE funding will be eligible to compete for the Jacqueline Wilson Scholarship—you do not need to apply separately.

Please note that although TECHNE funding can be secured by students who have already started their doctoral studies, the Jacqueline Wilson Scholarship is only open to new applicants.

Fully-funded by the University of Roehampton, Department of English and Creative Writing.

Covers Home/EU fees of £4,260, as well as an annual stipend at current Research Council rates (£16,777.00.p.a. for 3 years full-time subject to satisfactory progress).
