The AHRC have just announced the second year of a successful scheme that will be of particular interest to M3C students conducting research into television or media more broadly, providing a unique opportunity to attend the Edinburgh Television Festival (ETF) and participate in a specifically curated programme of events at one of the television industry’s most important events (http://www.thetvfestival.com/). The scheme is only open to PhD students funded by a doctoral training partnership or equivalent. I have attached the details and application guidance with this email and would encourage anyone working in the field of television studies, or with a research angle directed to television and media, to discuss this opportunity with their supervisors.
One of our Midlands3Cities students, Ayesha Camera-Taylor, was successful in this competition last year and it opened the door to unique and prestigious internship with the BBC, which she is currently undertaking.
Please note the deadline for applications is 1 May 2019.
