A studentship is worth approximately £19,000 per year for maintenance and tuition fees. CHASE AHRC studentships are open to UK and EU students who meet the residency requirements set out in the AHRC Guide to Student Funding – (http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/Student-Funding-Guide.pdf)
