International Placement Scheme Re-opens for Applications – ECR Eligibility Extended

Leave a comment

The AHRC has re-opened the 2013/14 International Placement Scheme (IPS) for applications to Sarai, India and National Institutes For The Humanities (NIHU), Japan.

Eligibility requirements have also been extended to include non-AHRC funded Early Career (ECR) applicants.

The IPS is an annual scholarship scheme. It offers arts and humanities researchers up to six month, funded research fellowships at AHRC international partner institutions.

The IPS is open to PhD students and Early Career Researchers. PhD students are required to have current AHRC-funding. This requirement has been lifted for ECRs, who just need to meet the standard ECR and AHRC eligibility requirements (Section 3: Eligibility).

IPS fellows receive a stipend for travel and living costs. 2013/2014 IPS placements are available between July 2013 – September 2014.

The Sarai and NIHU IPS application deadline is 21st March 2013.

More information on the scheme, eligibility, past awards, plus application guidance can be found on the AHRC IPS webpages.

For queries not answered by the guidance documents, please contact Allie Brown at the AHRC on or 01793 416074.

The IPS is not re-opening for 2013/14 applications to Library of Congress or The Huntington Library. The 2014/15 IPS competition will open from approximately autumn/winter 2013. New institutions may be added and eligibility may be further revised. Please monitor the AHRC website for details.
