The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen Mary University of London is committed to increasing the representation of, and opportunities for, UK Black and Global Majority students who wish to pursue postgraduate degrees in the Humanities. It recognises that funding opportunities across humanities disciplines at MA level are particularly limited.
For 2021-22, the Faculty will be offering four fully funded studentships (fee waiver and stipend of £17,609) to talented UK applicants from a Black and Global Majority background who may be interested in a research career and/or further postgraduate study. Applicants must be students or graduates of Queen Mary and have an offer of a place to take a Humanities Master's degree at Queen Mary in any of the Primary Research Areas (excluding LLM and MSc degrees in Law and Legal Studies) relevant to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences that are covered by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
