Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) is the UK funding body for the arts and humanities.
Each year the AHRC provides funding from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities.
Only applications of the highest quality and excellence are funded. Research supported by this investment provides social and cultural benefits and also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
