The Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York, UK, invites applications for PhD programmes starting in October 2020.

Several funding schemes are available:
- WRoCAH (AHRC) funding for UK/EU students wanting to study for a PhD.
- ESRC DTP funding for UK/EU students wanting to study for a PhD (+3) or Masters + PhD (1+3).
- Wolfson Foundation funding for students of any nationality to study for a PhD.
- Overseas Research Scholarships for international students to study for a PhD.
- Acton-Goodman PhD Scholarship, open to students of any nationality to study for a PhD within the Morrell Centre for Toleration (Law School).

The UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) fund studies through collaborative doctoral training partnerships. These partnerships are responsible for the distribution of studentships and for the coordination of a doctoral training programme. AHRC and ESRC funding is available to UK students (fees + stipend of approximately £15,000) and EU students (fees only). Note that the Acton-Goodman scholarship is open to applicants from any country, but covers fees at the UK/EU rate. As the awards will be hosted by the Law School they are most likely suited to topics in forensic linguistics.

Applicants for funding in all schemes must have applied for a PhD and/or Masters place at York. Note that the application forms are detailed and require considerable time to prepare. You should follow the University of York’s online application procedure at the following URL:
