ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIPS
The SGSAH EARTH Scholarships is a programme run by Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (SGSAH) with funding from the British Council to enable international research collaborations between PhD and Early Career Researchers and Scottish HEIs and Scotland-based academic mentors, and external organisations, thematically focused on environmental arts and humanities and their interdisciplinary connections.
The overall aim of the programme is to promote the role and interventions of the environmental arts and humanities, and the arts and cultural sector, in addressing the climate emergency, and their capacity for interdisciplinary research within STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) contexts.
Open to PhD and early career researchers (ECRs) registered at or graduated from any non-UK university who are working within the environmental arts and humanities to come to Scotland to work with an academic mentor and access networks and resources of a host HEI (Higher Education Institute) in 2024.
All applicants must be currently registered for a PhD, or graduated with a PhD, which broadly falls under Arts & Humanities subject areas. These subject areas are detailed by the AHRC. Research proposals must also fall into Arts & Humanities subject areas. For any interdisciplinary PhDs, at least 50% of the project must fall within Arts & Humanities disciplines. The programme strongly encourages research project proposals that have interdisciplinarity approaches beyond the Arts & Humanities.
For the purposes of the Programme, ECRs must be within 1 year of notification of award of their PhD (under exceptional circumstances this can be extended to 2 years).

Late applications will only be considered where there is evidenced breakdown in SGSAH’s operational systems and where such system failures have made submission by the deadline impossible.
Note that SGSAH will not accept late applications where there has been a system failure at the applicant’s end (e.g failure of internet connection). For this reason, they strongly advise applicants to complete the application process at least 48 hours in advance of the deadline.
