How many applications per AHRC cohort?

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows approximately how many students apply each year to each AHRC funding cohort? I am specifically interested in WRoCAH, though I would be interested to know any others, too.

Thanks!
I know that this year, about 900 people competed for 70 M4C places, while 550+ people competed for 28 SWW places.
Three years ago, LAHP stated that they received over 700 applications for 90 awards.
However, if you're an international student, it is much more difficult: less than 30% of the awards can go to international students, though they are usually the majority of the applicants. So, while 500 international applicants (I don't know the exact number of international students! That's just a wild guess) submitted their M4C applications, only less than 21 of them can get the award.

Very helpful, thank you!
I have the info for WRoCAH for anyone interested:

418 applicants applied to WRoCAH this year (across all three universities and the various humanities subject areas). 121 people were put through to stage 2 and eventually 50 offers were made, making that a 12% overall success rate.
At an NWCDTP info session, the director advised they average about 250 applications a year, of which around 100 are nominated and 35 are successful. So, that points to an overall success rate of 1 in 7/8. Obviously number of applicants could vary but I’d imagine across the DTPs, the success rate is fairly similar. Whether it’s easier to get through the competitions with more studentships on offer, I have no idea
