The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures will offer one award for research in any romance literature, language or dialect.


The award is worth £2,300 and will be tenable for one academic year.


The  award is tenable by postgraduate students who are graduates of the University, registered as candidates for an Masters or PhD degree in the University, or will be registered as such in September 2021.

Students who will be entering their 1st to 3rd year of PhD study in September 2021 (or the part-time equivalent) will be eligible to apply.


Applications for the 2021-2022 academic session are no longer being accepted for this scholarship as the 3rd of May deadline has now passed.
