Inclusive PhD Scholarships Programme


Application Deadline – 28 March 2024

New for 2024, our inclusive scholarships programme will promote the benefits of SHAPE (Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts for People and the Economy) researcher careers to more diverse communities.

We recognise the need to accelerate support, and enhance opportunities, for under-represented groups. This scholarship programme seeks to develop a more inclusive research community at Cardiff University and enable scholarship awardees to achieve their full potential and benefit from a postgraduate qualification and experience.

It also aims to make a difference to external communities and the experiences of people from minority or marginalised groups through the research projects it will fund.

There are two application routes available:

Pre-determined projects – an opportunity to apply for a scholarship associated with one of 10 pre-determined projects on themes from mental health diagnostic injustices to deaf citizenship in Wales and diversity and inclusion in the creative industries.

Open competition – an opportunity where you can propose a research project of your own.
