Exeter University Funded PhD: The Kemp Scholarship
The Kemp Scholarship is funded by the Kemp Fund. Parts of this fund support post-graduate scholarships for research within the field of Cornish history, literature or general culture including science. The successful candidate will be situated on the Penryn (Cornwall) campus of the University of Exeter. The successful applicant will work on the new Agan Kernow programme of the Institute of Cornish Studies that seeks to explore issues of historical and contemporary identity in Cornwall. Research for the PhD would be based on the collection and interpretation of oral history evidence relating to issues of democracy, identity and heritage in Cornwall and recordings from the project would be deposited with the Cornish Audio Visual Archive at Kresen Kernow in Redruth.
This project is coordinated by Dr Garry Tregidga and Dr Tim Cooper at the Institute of Cornish Studies, at the Penryn Campus of the University of Exeter.
Successful UK/EU applicants will have their tuition fee paid by the Kemp Fund (University of Exeter) for up to 3 years (36 months), and a stipend of £11,000 per year will be paid to support living costs for up to 3 years (36 months).
