This is a brief update on 4 PhD scholarships (full fee waiver and an annual bursary of £17,668) relevant to popular music at the University of Huddersfield, UK, that we previously advertised on this list. The original deadline of 10 February was extended to 27 February 2023, so there is still enough time to write and submit a proposal. Please spread the word and invite students or graduates to apply. The 4 scholarships are:
The Creative Music Production Scholarship is aimed at projects focused on the art of record production or other relevant subjects.
The Nitin Sawhney Scholarship is open to any popular music topic, whether focused on text-based or practice-based research. It will include some tutorial support from British composer, performer, and producer Nitin Sawhney.
The Richie Hawtin Scholarship focuses on electronic music and may include some tuition from DJ and Producer Richie Hawtin if appropriate.
The John Warhurst scholarship is focused on film music and media composition, named after and supported by Huddersfield University graduate and Oscar winner John Warhurst, as well as the Nitin Sawhney Scholarship supporting any area of popular music scholarship.
