The Political Studies Association (PSA) has now launched this new initiative to support black and minority ethnic scholars currently undertaking PhD study in politics and international relations:
The PSA is looking to award three Diverse Voices Scholarships in 2022 to students who meet both the following criteria:
- A PhD student (in their second or final year) affiliated to a UK Higher Education Institution; and,
- Those self-identified as Black British, Asian British, or minority ethnic UK permanent residents.
The Diverse Voices Scholars will benefit, for one year, from:
- Free PSA Membership
- All expenses covered attendance at the PSA’s Annual Conference (PSA23)
- Networking opportunities during the PSA events and with PSA Executive Committee members
- Mentoring (especially on academic publishing)
- Up to £500 pounds to cover research-related expenses.
The application deadline is 17 June 2022 and more information about the initiative and how to apply can be found via the weblink above.
