Applications for the British Council Scotland SGSAH EARTH Scholarships 2023 are now open. The SGSAH EARTH Scholarships is a programme run by Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (SGSAH) with funding from the British Council to enable international research collaborations between PhD and Early Career Researchers and Scottish HEIs and Scotland-based academic mentors, and external organisations, thematically focused on environmental arts and humanities and their interdisciplinary connections.
The overall aim of the programme is to promote the role and interventions of the environmental arts and humanities, and the arts and cultural sector, in addressing the climate emergency, and their capacity for interdisciplinary research within STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) contexts. The programme will create research opportunities and international mobility which will develop and support new approaches to address the global challenge of climate crisis, and support sustainable research and cultural interchanges within and beyond the arts and, humanities and cultural sectors.
The principles of this programme build on SGSAH’s Internationalisation ambitions and actions, align with SGSAH’s GREEN/GRADUATE Strategy and Operational Plan, and with the British Council’s Climate Connections legacy programme. The programme will be structured around two of SGSAH’s strategic themes and priority areas. The Environmental Humanities and Creative Industries/Economies, with a focus on climate emergency themes, the interventions of the arts and cultural sector, and the legacy of COP26, held in Glasgow in 2021. The programme will enrich collaborations between Scottish and international HEIs, building on SGSAH’s Global Connects programmes, and the SFC Saltire Emerging Researcher scheme.
The programme will provide scholarships for PhD and Early Career Researchers based outside the UK to come to Scotland to undertake in-person and hybrid exchanges for up to 3 months in 2023, in the area of environmental arts and humanities. The research placements will include an in-person 2-week cohort-building core leadership programme where all recipients will come together alongside Scotland-based scholars to network and collaborate in April 2023, supported by a set of thematically and geographically oriented Clusters.

Applicant must submit:
Late applications will only be considered where there is evidenced breakdown in SGSAH’s operational systems. And where such system failures have made submission by the deadline impossible. Note that SGSAH will not accept late applications where there has been a system failure at the applicant’s end (e.g failure of internet connection). For this reason, they strongly advise applicants to complete the application process at least 48 hours in advance of the deadline.
