Marie Rodet email@example.com Sunday, November 18, 2012 Subject: SOAS PhD scholarships Dear all, For your information and for distribution, please find below information PhD funding available for next year's entry. Compared to last year the two main changes are the new SWIRE Scholarship and the AHRC Studentships. There will be seven AHRC studenships for Asian Language and Culture, History, History of Art, Architecture and Design, Linguistics, Middle Eastern and African Language & Culture and Religious Studies. Our History department should get one and has a fair chance for a second studentship, depending on the quality of the applications that we get.
