Professor Sir Richard Trainor PhD Scholarships for History
Applications are now open for the Professor Sir Richard Trainor Scholarship scheme to new incoming PhD students in the Department of History.
Applications are now open for the Professor Sir Richard Trainor Scholarship scheme which was developed in response to an anonymous donation in acknowledgement of the Principal who left the College in 2014 after ten years.
For the academic year 2016-17, one scholarship has been made available to each of the following projects in the Department of History at King’s College London:
|Project Title||Lead Project Supervisor||Project Description|
|The Business History of the British Aircraft Industry||Professor David Edgerton||The aim of this research is to provide the first archive-based account of the history of the British aircraft firms in collaboration with the Royal Air Force Museum.|
|‘Frontier Encounters’: Class, Gender and Youth Work in East London, 1918-1984||Dr Alana Harris||Building upon the untapped archive of the Canning Town-based Malvern College Docklands Settlement (then Mayflower Family Centre) recently donated to the Bishopsgate Institute, this project will examine the changing character of Christian youth work across the twentieth century.|
The scholarships will commence from October 2016 onwards and are open to new incoming PhD students only. For more information about each project and application guidance please visit the Student Funding page.
