The Fellowships are intended as writing-up awards. They will be awarded to doctoral students who are engaged in the completion of a doctorate in history (broadly defined) and who will have completed at least three years of full-time or four years of part-time research on their doctoral programme (and not more than four years’ full-time or six years’ part-time) at the beginning of the academic year in which the awards will be held. Fellowships will normally be tenable for up to one year, but may be awarded for six months to candidates who expect to submit a thesis within that timescale.
It is the responsibility of the award holder and the supervisor to inform the Director as soon as the thesis is submitted for examination. Further instalments of the Fellowship will not be payable for the quarter or quarters following the submission of the thesis. These awards cannot be held in conjunction with any other substantial maintenance grant.
At the discretion of the Director of the Institute, Fellows may engage in teaching or other paid work for up to six hours per week.
