ACU Routledge/Round Table Commonwealth Studentships Program for Ph.D. Students

ACU Routledge/Round Table Commonwealth Studentships Program for Ph.D. Students

The ACU Routledge/Round Table Commonwealth PhD studentships provide support for research projects on Commonwealth-related themes.

Two studentships are available each year, to the maximum value of £5,500 GBP each:

  • One for students registered at UK universities

  • One for students registered at universities in other Commonwealth countries

    Applications are welcomed from a broad range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, but preference may be given to disciplines usually covered by the Round Table journal, including (but not exclusively) politics, international relations, economics, international history, geography, law, development studies, and area studies.

    Applications in the pure sciences and medicine will not be considered, but studies relating to science and health policies are welcomed.

    Proposed research must: relate to the Commonwealth as a whole or to any Commonwealth-wide institution or organisation, or have a Commonwealth comparative aspect, or be of relevance to more than one Commonwealth country.


  • The first studentship is open to registered PhD students from UK universities, although not necessarily UK citizens.

  • The second is open to registered PhD students from ACU member universities in Commonwealth counties other than the UK, and to Chevening and Commonwealth Scholarship alumni who are PhD students at any Commonwealth university outside the UK.


    As part of
    the studentship, applicants are required to identify and work with a mentor at a university in a Commonwealth country other than that in which they are based. This should be an expert in a subject linked to the applicant’s subject of research, who will be able to provide support and advice during the studentship.

    Before applying, applicants are encouraged to informally approach at least one potential mentor and, if their application is successful, will then be required to obtain a letter of support from their mentor to agree to the mentorship before their studentship is confirmed.

    Payment of the award

    £4,000 GB will be paid on the announcement of the awards. The remaining £1,500 GBP will be paid on completion of the post-studentship requirements.
