Fully-funded PhD scholarship dedicated to the folklore and literature of the Caucasus region

Venue: University of Sheffield, UK
Application deadline: June 30, 2013


Thanks to a generous donation, the Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies at the University of Sheffield invites applications for a fully-funded PhD scholarship dedicated to the folklore and literature of the Caucasus region. Proposals may pertain to the folklore and literature itself, the history of scholarship on the question, and the role they have played in the formation of social and cultural identity.

The scholarship includes all University fees, a grant for living expenses and funds for approved research expenses.



Fluency in Russian language is essential, and knowledge of one Caucasian language would be an advantage.
