The British Society of Aesthetics proposes to award one Ph.D. studentship full-time maintenance grant of £13,590 (or within the City of London or the Metropolitan Police district: £15,590) plus tuition fees up to a maximum value of £3,500 from September 2011 for up to 3 years.
The studentship is designed to support a promising philosopher in aesthetics and the philosophy of art, by enabling him or her to pursue full time doctoral research.

Candidates for the studentship should already be accepted on to a Ph.D. programme at a British university at the time of application, to research on a subject that falls within the remit of the British Society of Aesthetics. It is a condition of application to the BSA that:
(a) candidates are eligible to apply to the AHRC's PhD studentship scheme,
(b) they have done so if a studentship is available, and
(c) they have applied to any other funding schemes available at the relevant institution.
If any such applications are successful, the amount of the BSA scholarship, if awarded, will be reduced by the amount of the other award(s).
The successful candidate will be expected to complete a PhD, or be very close to completion, by the end of the award period, and to provide brief progress reports to the Society at the end of each year.

Applications should consist of a CV, a statement of proposed research (max 1500 words), and a personal statement on how the proposed research relates to your previous philosophical career and interests (max 1000 words). Applicants must also ensure that TWO references are received by the Society by the same deadline (these may be sent directly by your referees).

All of the above must be sent in electronic form (Word or pdf) via email to:
Caroline Auty, BSA Administrator
Applicants should also ensure that an official letter is sent confirming acceptance of the candidate on to the Ph.D programme in the department in which the candidate proposes to hold the studentship.

This must either be sent in electronic form to Caroline Auty as above or via post to:

Caroline Auty, Administrator
British Society of Aesthetics
PO Box 271

Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit a piece of written work of (maximum 7500 words) after this date.
