What we offer

Over £2million in funding available

Through the generosity of the Leverhulme Trust and match-funding from the partner universities, Knowledge Orders is able to offer over the lifetime of the programme:

  • up to fifteen Leverhulme doctoral scholarships (three of which can be awarded to international students)
  • up to three King’s doctoral scholarships
  • up to two Kent doctoral scholarships
  • in addition, King’s will upgrade up to three Leverhulme doctoral scholarships so it is available to an international student
  • up to three Leverhulme Master’s Plus Doctoral scholarships, which are specifically designed to promote inclusion

Each doctoral scholarship is expected to cover 3.5 years of full-time study. It includes:

  • maintenance (at UKRI base levels)
  • tuition fees (at UKRI base levels)
  • £10,000 to be used to support the individual student’s research and training needs

Each scholar will be based at one of the two institutions that form KOM’s partnership — King’s College London and the Centre from Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the University of Kent — but will be able to draw on expertise from across the partnership. The KOM Directors will organise a roster of events to support the cohorts’ development and skills.

The programme will fund three cohorts of doctoral scholars, starting in autumn 2024, 2025, and 2026.
