RHS Doctoral Fellowships, 2022-23 – call for applications

22 March 2022

Applications are now invited for the RHS Centenary and Marshall doctoral fellowships, 2022-23. The fellowships, funded by the Royal Historical Society, are intended to cover the final 6 or 12 months of doctoral research in History.

Fellowships are held at the Institute of Historical Research, University of London, and include training and preparation for work after completion of the doctorate.

Both the Centenary and Marshall Fellowships are worth £15,726 for a full year (or £7,863 for a 6-month award).

Both fellowships are open to candidates without regard to nationality or academic affiliation.

Applications are made via the Institute of Historical Research, University of London. The IHR site provides further information on the Fellowships, what they offer and how to apply via the Institute’s online application system.

Closing date for applications: Tuesday 19 May 2022, with interviews in June / July tbc.

Holders of the Centenary and Marshall Fellowships will have the opportunity to contribute to the Royal Historical Society’s blog on their research and to take part in RHS events and training. Holders who are not already members of the Society will receive a 12-month Postgraduate Membership of the Royal Historical Society.

The Marshall Fellowships are supported by the generosity of Professor Peter Marshall, formerly Rhodes Professor of Imperial History at King’s College London and President of the Royal Historical Society from 1996 to 2000. The Marshall Fellowship supports final year PhD students to complete a doctorate and to develop their career.
