Nahrein Network-UCL graduate studentship in Iraqi heritage, archaeology and history
The 2021 scheme is now closed to applicants. The 2022 scheme will be advertised early next year
The Nahrein Network is pleased to announce our first fully funded MA/MSc + PhD studentship for Iraqi nationals, to be held at University College London in the Department of History, the Institute of Archaeology, or the Bartlett Institute for Sustainable Heritage. The list of participating Masters programmes in academic year 2021-22 is given below.
The scholarship covers full university tuition fees plus an annual maintenance grant of £22,278.00 and access to research funds. It is tenable for academic year 2021-22 in the first instance for the duration of the student’s MA/MSc programme. Subject to satisfactory progress, the scholarship may be extended for a further three years to support full-time PhD research at UCL on a project related to the Nahrein Network’s aims.
To be eligible to apply you should:
Be a citizen and resident of Iraq, including the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI)
