Cohort Development Funding

Cohort Development Funding

The Cohort Development Fund scheme allows the SGSAH Panels to support training initiatives directed towards supporting the disciplinary and interdisciplinary training needs of doctoral researchers in the Arts & Humanities.

The SGSAH Panel Cohort Development Fund aims to support SGSAH staff, students and institutions to work collaboratively to develop and improve doctoral training across Scotland, by funding them to:

  • develop/deliver training that is not possible/viable for individual institutions and is in the vanguard of the field(s);
  • develop/deliver training that is innovative in scope, subject and/or delivery model;
  • lead the development of research training in their discipline(s);
  • develop strong and sustainable peer networks among SGSAH staff & students;
  • build capacity among the student body to identify, lead, manage and/or deliver their own training;
  • develop students' capacity in grant proposal writing.

Information regarding deadlines and how to apply to the Cohort Development Fund 2017/18 will be published in the near future.
