Our intellectual environment fosters the problem-driven and cross- and interdisciplinary research vital to addressing the new challenges of a world shaped by the speed of technological innovation and global change. Understanding and promoting the value of human culture and creativity in addressing such challenges is central to the CHASE vision of postgraduate research and professional development.
We support discipline-based projects, but also specialise in interdisciplinary research and research in emerging fields of study and creative practice. Our research and training environment encourages our doctoral students to develop interdisciplinary methodologies and to explore how to integrate their research with developments in digital technologies. In addition, our network of partnerships with leading arts and humanities organisations and creative industries provides an outstanding resource for future CHASE scholars.
Applications for funding will be considered by Goldsmiths, University of London, with the best applicants put forward to four CHASE selection panels. Applications will be considered on a competitive basis.
For UK students, these awards cover both fees and maintenance and for EU residents awards are on a fees only basis. The funding will cover professional development opportunities, including the enhancement of public engagement skills and placements with CHASE partner organisations in the UK and overseas.
To be considered for one of these awards, please note that you need to have applied to a PhD programme by 14 January 2015. We encourage you to contact us as early as possible to discuss your proposal.
