The Centre awards a number of Prize Research Grants each academic year. Students intending to study for the MPhil in Economic and Social History, in Political Thought and Intellectual History, in Modern European History, in Modern South Asian Studies, in American History, in African Studies, in World History, in Modern British History, in Economics, or for another PhD or MPhil programme in the faculties of the University of Cambridge in related disciplines are eligible to apply. We particularly invite applications from students intending to work on themes close to the Centre’s own research programme. Prize Research Grants are conditional on acceptance by and matriculation at the University. The Prize Research Grants provide access to the Centre's facilities, an entitlement to funding for extra supervisions, a book grant and funding towards research-related travel (up to a total value of £700).
Referees will receive an email request and are invited to submit letters of recommendation through our website by Wednesday 20 June 2018. Applicants are advised to make their referees aware of the deadline for submitting references.
Grants for Students outside the University of Cambridge
The Centre also offers a small number of Prize Research Grants in connection with the Cambridge/Harvard research programme on Exchanges of Economic, Legal and Political Ideas. These are intended for students at other universities, in the UK or elsewhere, who wish to visit Cambridge for short periods of time in connection with their research.
