The Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) consortium, which consists of eight universities, among which the University of Bristol, will award more than 50 scholarships for students commencing doctoral research in 2015-16, including those studying topics relating to classics, classical studies, ancient history and classical reception. Applications can be made to the DTP after 26 November 2014. The closing date for applications is 12 January 2015.

If you wish to undertake doctoral studies at the University of Bristol, and wish to be considered for a DTP scholarship, please make contact with your potential supervisor at Bristol as soon as possible. The University of Bristol also expects to be in a position to offer a number of its own postgraduate research scholarships to outstanding applicants. Students who apply for a DTP scholarship based at Bristol will also be automatically considered for a University of Bristol scholarship. An application for a place on the PGR programme at the University of Bristol can be made at any time, but only those applications received before 12 January 2015 will be considered for a UoB scholarship.
