The Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities incorporates the AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) Scotland. Doctoral Training Partnerships are block grant awards made by the Arts & Humanities Research Council to support PhD study at selected universities. 


The AHRC DTP Scotland comprises eight higher education institutions working together with a prestigious range of local, regional & national arts, culture, heritage & other organisations to deliver world-class doctoral training in the arts & humanities. 

We have been awarded a total of 200 studentships over the period 2014 to 2019. AHRC-funded students benefit from fees, stipend, a core personal & professional training programme & additional funding to support bespoke training needs.  Eligibility rules apply to AHRC funding.

In 2016/17, the DTP Scotland will fund approximately 54 PhD studentships. Full guidance for the competition is available on our application process webpages here.
