The Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica Scholarship for the Study of Spanish Art
The Courtauld is pleased to invite applications for a fully funded doctoral scholarship in Spanish art-historical studies, commencing at The Courtauld in the academic year 2018/9.
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 be available by mid-November 2017: 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 at least 6 weeks before the application deadline of 10 January, and preferably earlier. As a minimum applicants should have at least a reading knwoledge in Spanish or Catalan, and are expected to hold a postgraduate qualification such as an MA or equivalent by the time they begin their doctoral studies. 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.
