Eligibility Conditions for the ACU Routledge/Round Table Commonwealth Studentship Program 2023/2024

The first studentship is available to registered Ph.D. students from UK universities, although not necessarily UK citizens.

The second is available to registered Ph.D. students from ACU member universities in Commonwealth counties other than the UK and to Chevening and Commonwealth Scholarship alumni who are Ph.D. students at any Commonwealth university outside the UK.

Mentorship

As a part of the studentship, applicants are needed to specify and work with a mentor at a university in a Commonwealth country other than that in which they are based. This should be an expert in a subject linked to the applicant’s subject of research, who will be able to provide support and advice during the studentship. Before applying, applicants are encouraged to informally approach at least one potential mentor and, if their application is successful, will then be required to obtain a letter of support from their mentor to agree to the mentorship before their studentship is confirmed.

Merits

£4,000 GB will be paid on the announcement of the awards. The remaining £1,500 GBP will be paid upon completion of the post-studentship requirements.
