The Centre will be awarding a number of Prize Research Grants in the academic year 2020-2021. The grants provide access to the Centre's resources and funding towards research-related activities (up to a total value of £700). 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 of the MPhil or PhD programmes 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.
Prize students will be invited to take part in new virtual collaborations with the Harvard Center for History and Economics and the Center for History and Economics in Paris. All the activities specific to the Cambridge Centre will also be taking place in a virtual environment until conditions permit otherwise.
The Centre is committed to a policy of equal opportunity.
Applications for Prize Research Grants 2020 - 2021 are now CLOSED.
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.
