Applications are welcomed from a broad range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, but preference may be given to disciplines usually covered by the Round Table journal, including (but not exclusively) politics, international relations, economics, international history, geography, law, development studies, and area studies.

The research must be conducted in the applicants’ country of residence. Proposed research must fulfill at least one of the below criteria:

  • Relate to the Commonwealth as a whole or to any Commonwealth-wide institution or organization.
  • Have a strong Commonwealth comparative aspect.
  • Be of relevance to a Commonwealth country other than the UK.

  • The second is open to registered PhD students from ACU member universities in Commonwealth counties other than the UK, and to Chevening and Commonwealth Scholarship alumni who are PhD students at any Commonwealth university outside the UK.

Successful applicants will be required to submit an article of between 4,000 and 6,000 words based on their research no more than 12 months after the take-up of the award.

Successful applicants will also be required to make a podcast on their research, for publication on the journal’s website.


As part of the studentship, applicants are required to identify and work with a mentor at an ACU member university in a country other than their own. This should be an expert in a subject linked to the applicant’s subject of research, who will be able to provide support and advice during the studentship.
