The London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP) award
The London Arts and Humanities Partnership has up to 90 cross-institutional studentships per year available for postgraduate research students studying arts and humanities disciplines.
A small number of full and partial scholarships for home and international students will be available through the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP), which open in November and have a deadline of 28 January 2022. Please note that anyone intending to apply for LAHP funding through the Warburg Institute will need to have applied and secured admission to the Warburg PhD programme first (see here for more details about the application process).
Prospective students who wish to apply for LAHP funding are encouraged to get in touch as soon as possible, and no later than 8 December 2021, with the Warburg’s PhD programme director, Dr Sara Miglietti (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the suitability of their proposal. Any applications received after this date are unlikely to be considered. This is so you can work closely with prospective supervisors and other staff on preparing your LAHP application materials in order to maximise your chances of getting funded.
Please provide the following materials when contacting Dr Sara Miglietti:
- Title and brief prospectus of proposed research (max 1000 words)
- (optional) names of prospective supervisors
We look forward to hearing from you.
