Applications are invited for a fully funded doctoral scholarship in Spanish art-historical studies, commencing at The Courtauld Institute in London in the academic year 2018/19.
The scholarship has been created through the generosity of CEEH (Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica), in association with ARTES
The Courtauld Institute is one of the world’s leading centres for art-historical research, and the scholarship will cover The Courtauld’s Home/EU/International tuition fees for three years (or four if required), together with an annual stipend of £12,000 for living costs and travel.
HOW TO APPLY
Applicants should apply to The Courtauld’s PhD programme following the standard process, and then submit an application via the Courtauld Scholarship application form
Applicants must demonstrate that Spanish art, architecture or visual culture forms the focus of their proposed research topic, and are advised to contact prospective supervisors to discuss research proposals at least six weeks before the application deadline of 10 January 2018, and ideally earlier. As a minimum, by the time they begin their doctoral studies, applicants are expected to hold a postgraduate qualification such as an MA or equivalent and should have at least reading knowledge in Spanish or Catalan. In the first instance applicants should send prospective supervisors a CV, sample of written work in English, and a 300 word proposal. In assessing applications the scholarship committee will consider the extent to which the research proposal falls under the supervisor’s areas of research expertise.
