Applications are invited from graduates, normally with a first or upper second class honours degree and/or relevant Master’s degree, who would be required to register as full-time students at Roehampton University, London.
Registration will require adherence to University regulations, and experienced and qualified supervisors will be appointed by the University.
Research topics should be focused on any aspect of the education of children from birth to seven years, and applicants are therefore invited to devise a clear research question and methodology deriving from the consideration, analysis or interrogation of Early Years issues.
Research topics should preferably have direct relevance to the development of Froebelian principles in practice.
Each studentship will include a maintenance grant of £13,290 per year, paid termly (with a small supplement for students living in the London Metropolitan Police District), and full-time fees as required by Roehampton University.
Applications are also invited for small Grants (of up to £5,000 each) for pilot studies.
Applications for Small Grants should not exceed 2000 words.
