Written by on Tuesday, posted in News (No comments yet)

The Graduate School at the University of Westminster has announced 10 new full PhD studentships funded by the Quintin Hogg Trust for students of Black, Pakistani or Bangladeshi heritage to begin in the academic year 2022/23 . Applications are welcome in all disciplines at Westminster, including those covered by the IMCC. For queries about any aspect of the application process or informal enquiries about our areas, please contact the School of Humanities PhD Coordinator, Dr Helen Glew:

Although the University of Westminster has one of the most diverse student bodies in the UK, with a high percentage of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) students, the backgrounds detailed below are the most underrepresented among PhD students (and academics) at the University and nationally. Applicants will be ‘home’ students (i.e. will be eligible for home fee status as per the UKCISA guidance available online here) and should then come from one of the following backgrounds:

  • Black (Black or Black British African, Black or Black British Caribbean, Black or Black British other or Mixed Black or Black British)
  • Pakistani (Pakistani or Pakistani British, or Pakistani Mixed or Pakistani Mixed British)
  • Bangladeshi (Bangladeshi or Bangladeshi British, or Bangladeshi Mixed or Bangladeshi Mixed British)

The studentships will consist of a fee waiver and an annual stipend of £17,609 (2021/22 rate, raising each year in line with UKRI increases) for three years.* This includes London weighting.

Applications should be submitted by 5pm on Friday 11 February 2022. Interviews will take place online in the week beginning 7 March 2022.
