Doctoral scholarships for researchers from UK Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities

Equality, diversity and inclusion are central to the core values and ambitions of the University of Leeds and the Faculty of Social Sciences. We are committed to addressing different forms of intersecting inequalities in relation to our teaching, learning, research and broader engagement with society.

As part of our work in this area, we hope to help address the significant under-representation of ethnic minority students in postgraduate research and throughout academia with a funding opportunity for Faculty of Social Sciences postgraduate research applicants from UK Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities.

For a period of up to five years beginning in 2022, we will be inviting applications for two new doctoral scholarship awards each year across the Faculty, covering full UK fees and maintenance at UKRI rates. There will be a total of 10 scholarships available over the course of the scheme.

This initiative aims to encourage a diverse postgraduate research community and help to develop a more inclusive pipeline for future academics and university leaders. 

Postgraduate researchers in the Faculty are also members of the Social Sciences Graduate School, which brings together a socially, culturally and intellectually diverse community of doctoral researchers, in an interdisciplinary research environment geared to addressing global challenges.
