ACU Commonwealth Routledge Studentship 2021/2022 for Students from Commonwealth Countries

Read Time:2 Minute, 25 Second

Routledge, the publisher of The Round Table: The Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs, established an annual award to sponsor students undertaking PhD in Understanding and Securing Human Rights. 

Application Deadline: 23rd July 2021 at 15:00 UTC.

Eligible Countries: Commonwealth countries

To Be Taken At (Country): Candidate’s home country

About the Award: The PhD studentships provide support for research projects on Commonwealth related themes. The studentships are funded by The Round Table: The Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs and the journal’s publisher, Routledge, in association with the ACU.

Two studentships are available each year, to the maximum value of GBP 5500 each. The first is open to registered PhD students from UK universities, although not necessarily UK citizens.

The second is open to registered PhD students from ACU member universities anywhere in the Commonwealth, and to Chevening and Commonwealth Scholarship alumni who are PhD students at any Commonwealth university outside the UK.

Proposed research must either:

  1. relate to the Commonwealth as a whole or to any Commonwealth-wide institution or organisation, or
  2. have a strong Commonwealth comparative aspect, or
  3. be of relevance to a Commonwealth country other than the UK.

For example, a research project comparing LGBT rights in South Africa and Uganda would be eligible, as would a project on the reform of colonial-era anti-LGBT legislation in India, but a project on the role of Stonewall in advocating for LGBT rights in the UK would not.

Applications are welcome from a broad range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, but preference may be given to disciplines usually covered by the Round Table journal, including (but not exclusively) politics, international relations, economics, international history, geography, law, development studies, and area studies.

Type: PhD

Eligibility:

  • The first studentship is open to registered PhD students from UK universities, although not necessarily UK citizens.
  • The second is open to registered PhD students from ACU member universities in Commonwealth counties other than the UK, and to Chevening and Commonwealth Scholarship alumni who are PhD students at any Commonwealth university outside the UK.

Number of Awards: 2

Value of Award: Two studentships are available each year, to the maximum value of GBP 5500 each.
