The British Council Scotland SGSAH EARTH Scholarships is a programme run by 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 scholarships will take place between March and July 2023 (including a compulsory, in-person cohort training programme in April 2023).
Scholarship proposals can be structured to further existing work being undertaken as a PhD or postdoctoral project, or be a discrete, standalone project which nonetheless furthers the knowledge base, networks and expertise of the researcher. The scholarship can also be structured as the researcher joining and furthering an existing project at the Host Institution.
A range of outcomes and outputs are anticipated, depending on the nature of the proposed exchange.
The EARTH Scholarships will take advantage of and be located within three geographically and thematically structured Clusters, which will offer research placements, training and development opportunities for researchers, and contribute to cohort training in April 2023. The Clusters will enable:
- Wider awareness and study of environmental arts and humanities disciplines in the Scottish context,
- Interdisciplinary working within and beyond the arts and humanities (STEAM),
- Field trips and engagement with other scholars, practitioners and professionals,
- Access to arts and cultural sector organisations, resources, expertise and experience in different geographical contexts, including urban and rural areas.
To be considered for the SGSAH, you must:
- Be a current PhD researcher in the Arts & Humanities registered at any non-UK university
- Be an ECR in the Arts & Humanities who graduated from any non-UK university
