The School of Modern Languages and Cultures is pleased to offer two Madeleine Albright PhD Scholarships in Czech Studies, funded by the Government of the Czech Republic, and  tenable from 1st October, 2016. The award is for three years in each instance and is worth 542,500 Czech crowns p.a. for each of the two students, approximately £ 14,000 p.a. depending on the current exchange rate. The scholarship is open to students of any nationality and is intended to cover tuition fees (at the Home/EU rate only) with the remainder contributing to maintenance. For current research fees see here!

Current research in the area of Czech Studies at the University of Glasgow concentrates on different aspects of 20th century Czech film, media, and literature studies, with a strong research record in topics such as culture and identity, and examination of different discursive approaches to self-examination and myth making. Comparative and interdisciplinary proposals, which examine the Czech topics within Central European and global contexts are especially welcome. Research proposals in other areas of study relating to the Czech Republic will be also considered.

The purpose of the Madeleine Albright PhD Scholarship in Czech Studies is to foster international understanding of the political and social culture of contemporary Czech Republic.

Before applying for one of the Madeleine Albright PhD scholarships, students should have applied for and received a conditional or unconditional acceptance for their proposed program of study through the online application process.
