YCEDE Seminar Series: Funding your PhD Virtual Event – 12th December, 10:30 – 12:00

Organised by the Yorkshire Consortium for Equity in Doctoral Education (YCEDE), this event will raise awareness of the many funding paths available to BAME students – including doctoral training partnerships, scholarships, and self-funding.

YCEDE is a collaboration between five universities in Yorkshire, 12 UKRI funded Doctoral Training partnerships and Centres for Doctoral Training plus several external partners dedicated to equity at doctoral level. Central to YCEDE is the question of access to doctoral study for graduates from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.

The event will include:

  • Introduction to YCEDE and what we do
  • Talks from two doctoral training partnerships about their funding opportunities
  • Q&A session with our current PhD students about their funding journey

We will be joined by:

  • Prof. Fliss Matthews, Director of the White Rose Social Science DTP
  • Jo Maltby, Manager of the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities

Additionally, we will be joined by some amazing PhD students:

  • Mel Williams: Current first-year PhD student at the University of York in the Politics Department. Mel’s work focuses on the role of immigration legislation in the ‘un-homing’ of British, Windrush descendants.
  • Nausheen Hoosein: Current second-year PhD at the University of York. Despite being based in the History of Art Department, Nausheen brings a multidisciplinary background with academic training in Political Science and Education.
  • Zenab Sabahat: Current first-year PhD student at the University of Bradford in the Psychology Department. Zenab’s work focuses on cultural adaptations for family interventions with people experiencing psychosis from a South Asian heritage.
