    Good afternoon everyone

    I've applied to four universities for PhD programmes, and each one is affiliated with a different AHRC DTP Consortium (I've also applied to each consortium too).

    I've heard that AHRC funding is centrally coordinated, and so it is not possible to receive offers from more than one AHRC consortium. Is this true? It would be great to know if anyone has ever received more than one funding offer.

    When I was dealing with this, which was 3 years ago, so it may have changed, you could certainly apply to different consortia. We presumed that applicants would do so, and so a number of offers would be rejected, despite their rarity/value, because the applicant would prefer another consortium.

    What we did have rules about (and I'm afraid I can't remember them in detail) was making more than one application to either different universities, or different research groups. So if you wanted to do research on Anglo Saxon Bibles, I don't remember which way it was, but you could either only apply to one Uni, or had to choose between applying under the History Group or the Religious Studies group.
