We are very excited to announce The Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender is offering a post graduate scholarship for entry onto the Social Research Methods MSc for the 2020/21 academic year.

For full details and information on how to apply please follow this link.

The scholarship is worth £6,624, equivalent to the UK/EU full-time course fee.

The scholarship has been developed to help promote gender diversity in HE and society, and to contribute to social research related to Trans experiences, rights and to challenge institutional genderism in wider debates about gender. UK research by the NUS reported that over half (51%) of Trans-identifying respondents had seriously considered discontinuing their course (NUS, 2014), which demonstrates that universities must do more to support and promote a Trans-inclusive environment and research.

The CTSG Scholarship will be awarded to a candidate who is committed to making a difference to the wider Trans community, especially its most marginalised members, for example disabled Trans people, TPOC. The successful candidate will also receive dedicated mentoring by a current CTSG member of staff and a PhD student to support your academic career. In addition, the successful candidate will have access to the CTSG’s own methodological space, The Creative Methods Lab, where researchers meet to develop and conduct research, using state-of-the-art visual and audio recording equipment.

The CTSG Scholarship is open to candidates who situate their research topic within one of the CTSG research themes (i.e. LGBT Queer lives; Sex, sexuality and health; Digital sexualities) and can demonstrate a commitment to social change, Trans rights and vision for the future of Transforming sexualities and gender inclusion and diversity in HE and society. The closing date for applications is 7 September 2020.
