I do things with words, mainly English and Arabic
CASAW – the Centre for the Advanced Study of the Arabic World, based within the Dept of Islamic & Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Edinburgh – is offering 2+3 (MSc + PhD) fully-funded scholarships. The MSc is the Arab World Studies programme, which consists of a lot of intensive Arabic plus other politics/history/culture courses. I can’t recommend applying for these highly enough for anyone eligible and interested:
Three Language Based Area Studies (LBAS) MSc + PhD scholarships will be awarded by the Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies, (CRCEES), University of Glasgow, and the Centre for the Advanced Study of the Arab World (CASAW), University of Edinburgh.
Starting date September 2013.
Applicants for study at CASAW should send a CV plus a 1,000 word outline of the proposed research topic and the names of two referees no later than 18 February 2013 to Dr Andrew Marsham (Andrew.Marsham@ed.ac.uk).
Applicants for study at CASAW must also complete an application to the masters in Arab World Studies, available here.
Please indicate on your application form that you are applying for an LBAS Scholarship. Applicants to be put forward for an LBAS scholarship by the University of Edinburgh will then be notified of this on or before 22 February 2013, at which point they should then register separately for the scholarship competition. For further details of the Scottish Doctoral Training Centre ESRC scholarships, see here.
The ESRC scholarships are open to citizens of the UK and/or the EU with a demonstrable connection to the UK. EU citizens not resident in the UK are eligible for a ‘fees only’ scholarship.
