By Tim JollesThe UK has announced it is launching a new scholarship programme to encourage people to consider a PhD in history.
The new programme will give a place to students interested in a career in history to apply.
The Government says the new scheme is designed to help people who want to take up the career path and will help young people.
Professor Ian Burleton, director of the Centre for the Study of the British Empire at University College London, said the new scholarship will help boost the diversity of the field of British history.
He said the aim was to give a different perspective to history, so that the academic and wider public are aware of what the field is and what it is doing.
“I think it’s really important to give people a sense of what is the breadth of the subject, the breadth and the depth of the work that we have to do in terms of historians and historians are really important for the wider society and for the way we think about ourselves and how we interact with other people and other cultures,” Professor Burleton said.
He added the aim of the scheme was to encourage more people to explore history, not just because they might be interested in history, but because it could be an interesting and rewarding career choice.
The programme will be open to all students and will be launched on Monday, April 23, 2020, at the end of the school year.”
That might be the best way to think of it.”

The Government said the scheme would not affect the funding available to universities.
It will allow students to apply for up to £8,000 in funding, which will be matched by the Government.
The aim of giving a place in the PhD to students who want a career of history is to help them understand the breadth, depth and breadth of our nation’s past, Dr Burleton told the BBC.
“So we want to give them the opportunity to think critically about our past, and to understand the role that history has played in our country’s development and the way that our society has changed over time.”
And I think it is really important that people can look at that work critically, and I think that is really helpful in getting a broad perspective on the history of the United Kingdom, and of course also a broad and deep understanding of how the country has changed.
“The new scheme was announced by Minister for Universities, Science and Science and Technology Chris Grayling on Monday.
Dr Burleton is one of the organisers of the initiative.
He said he was excited to see the new funding available for research in the field.”
In my own research, I have been very encouraged by the funding that the Government is putting into this programme.
It is really exciting to see that the UK is really taking interest in this and is offering funding to those who are going to be looking at it and applying,” he said.
The Department for Education and Skills said it was not yet clear when the scheme will launch, but the scheme is being designed to ensure it is as accessible as possible.
It said: “We are committed to supporting students who have been interested in pursuing a PhD and have chosen to study history at a university.”
We will be monitoring the progress of this programme, and will ensure that it is accessible to all eligible applicants.”
The scheme is available to students at universities in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
