The Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica Scholarship for the Study of Spanish Art
The Courtauld is delighted to announce the creation of a fully funded doctoral scholarship in Spanish art-historical studies, commencing at The Courtauld in the academic year 2017/18.
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 (see http://courtauld.ac.uk/study/phd-research), and then submit an application via the Courtauld Scholarship application form (which will also be available by mid-October 2016: http://courtauld.ac.uk/study/fees-and-funding/postgraduates/courtauld-scholarships).
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 well before the application deadline of 9 January 2017. As a minimum applicants are expected to hold a postgraduate qualification such as an MA or equivalent by the time they begin their doctoral studies, 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.
