Funding opportunities for postgraduate research degrees in History

General Funding Opportunities

General information about funding opportunities for postgraduate research is available from the university’s Research Degrees website.

CHASE Studentships in History

The Open University is part of the CHASE AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership (alongside the Courtauld Institute of Art and Goldsmith’s College at the University of London and the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, Kent and Sussex). Successful applicants for PhD study will be able to apply for studentship funding as part of this partnership. For UK students, these awards cover both fees and maintenance. For EU residents awards are on a fees only basis. The funding is also designed to enable professional development opportunities, including public engagement skills and placements with CHASE partner organisations in the UK and overseas.

To discuss possible funding opportunities further and for advice with regard to funding applications, please contact the History Department admissions officer at

Applications will be considered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences on a competitive basis and forwarded to four CHASE panels for further assessment and ranking.

For full details of all subject areas and how to apply, please see the CHASE website.
