SGSAH organises internships and artist residencies for PhD researchers to spend up to three months at a partner host organisation, enabling you to enhance your research skills in a wide variety of contexts. These exciting opportunities give you the chance to make a difference to an organisation, whilst developing your skills, networks and CV to take you to the next stage of your career.
You have not already undertaken an internship or residency through SGSAH’s programme.
*you can apply to undertake a placement in the later/final stages of your PhD provided that you will still be registered at your HEI throughout the total period of the internship and you have full support from your supervisory team.
We recognise there are some subjects where the AHRC and the ESRC share interests and responsibilities (as can be found here, pages 74-77. PhD students in these areas are eligible to apply for SGSAH-funded internships as long as they fulfil the eligibility criteria as above, and additionally, have not been funded for an internship through the UKRI in Scotland (ie through SGSSS). Students registered in social science disciplines/departments may therefore be eligible to apply; contact email@example.com for clarification.
For an informal discussion about any aspect of the programme, please contact Helen Kendrick, SGSAH Partnerships & Placements Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org.
