Generation Delta Studentships

Primary page content

These studentships build on and contribute to the recently launched OFS / Research England project Generation Delta: Building Routes into Professorship for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Women, which seeks to redress barriers to access and participation in doctoral study for racialised students generally and women of colour in particular.

While Generation Delta Goldsmiths Studentships are open to all eligible applicants from Black and racially minoritised backgrounds in any field of study at Goldsmiths, University of London, it is anticipated that at least one award will be made to a woman of colour which is the group most underrepresented nationally in terms of doctoral study and studentship funding.

"The Generation Delta Studentship has been an invaluable opportunity for me, providing me with the resources and support necessary to achieve my academic and professional aspirations. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and I will continue to work hard to make the most of it."

Clémentine Bedos, Generation Delta Champion and PhD Candidate in Art and Computing
