FUNDING FOR POSTGRADUATE STUDY

Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies

and

Bakhtin Centre

University of Sheffield

The following funding is available for UK/EU-based students
entering in the 2004/05 academic year:

A. TWO PROJECT STUDENTSHIPS

1. A studentship associated with the AHRB-funded project 'The
rise of sociological linguistics in the Soviet Union, 1917
1938: institutions, ideas and agendas', located in the Bakhtin
Centre and directed by Dr Craig Brandist. The holder of this
studentship will research the development of the philosophy of
language and semiotics in the State Academy for Research in
the Arts (GAKhN), focusing on the history of the institution,
its research projects, on the approaches that arose and on
their influence on the development of Soviet thought about
language.

Further details about this studentship, which provides UK/EU
tuition fees and a stipend of 10500 p.a. (rising in line with
AHRB/Research Council recommendations), may be found at

http://www.shef.ac.uk/uni/academic/A-
C/bakh/sociolinguistics.html#studentship

Interested candidates are invited to contact Dr Craig Brandist
(c.s.brandist@shef.ac.uk) for more information.

The closing date for applications for this studentship is 1
June 2004.

2. A White Rose studentship for the project 'Post-War Soviet
Visual Culture'. The research carried out by the holder of
this studentship will centre on the work of Leningrad artist
Aleksandr Laktionov and its reception. Supervision will be by
Dr Susan Reid (Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies,
University of Sheffield) and Dr David Jackson (School of Fine
Art, University of Leeds).

The studentship provides UK/EU tuition fees and a stipend of
10500 p.a. (rising in line with AHRB/Research Council
recommendations).

Interested candidates are invited to contact Dr Susan Reid
(s.e.reid@shef.ac.uk) for more information.

B. THREE OPEN STUDENTSHIPS

These studentships provide UK/EU tuition fees and a stipend of
10500 that can be spread over one, two, or three years. They
are available to students admitted to read for the degrees of
MPhil or PhD, or to students admitted to take a research-track
MA degree (e.g. the MA in Slavonic Studies (Research Track) or
the MA in Critical Theory and Modern Languages), provided that
they intend to go on to doctoral study.

It is a condition of these awards that candidates must also
apply for external funding, typically from the Arts and
Humanities Research Board (see D below).

C. FEE BURSARIES

A number of bursaries covering the cost of UK/EU tuition fees,
but with no maintenance element, are also available.

D. THE ARTS AND HUMANITIES RESEARCH BOARD (AHRB)

UK/EU candidates for postgraduate study in the Department of
Russian and Slavonic Studies or the Bakhtin Centre are
eligible to apply, with the support of the Department/Centre,
for funding under the AHRB's open competitions for
postgraduate study, further details of which may be found at

http://www.ahrb.ac.uk/apply/postgraduate.asp

Under the terms of a special scheme, for the next three years
the AHRB has 'ring-fenced' up to six three-year doctoral
awards for research projects on 'East and Central European and
Balkan Studies: Literatures, History, Culture and Languages'.
Applications submitted via the Department of Russian and
Slavonic Studies may be directed, as appropriate, to this
scheme.

Application to the AHRB is usually a requirement for any student
who
wishes to be considered for one of the Open Studentships (see B
above).

Any student wishing to make an application to the AHRB
supported by the University of Sheffield must apply for a
place at Sheffield no later than 15 March 2004, in order to
allow time for the processing of the AHRB application before
the deadline in early May.
