The twelve different Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships, representing more than 35 Museums, Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Heritage Organisations across the UK with track records of supporting doctoral research to support their work.

Through the Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme these organisations run competitions to choose fully funded AHRC research studentships to support. Each studentship will be jointly supervised by a member of staff in a University and someone in the partner organisation as a Collaborative Doctoral Award. The topic of the research has to support the work and objectives of the partner organisation, and the student will benefit from participating in joint training and other opportunities offered by consortium of CDP holders. For further details about how different organisations allocate their studentships and their priorities, please link to their individual websites/email contact details listed on our joint website.
