Yousef Jameel Scholarship

Am I eligible? What does it cover? How do I apply? How will I know if I have been successful?

The Yousef Jameel Scholarship is generously funded by Sheikh Yousef Abdul Latif Jameel. Up to two fully funded scholarships are available to one-year Master’s students demonstrating exceptional academic merit and/or potential, commencing their course of study at the University’s Faculty of Oriental Studies.

Am I eligible?

Candidates should be applying to start a new Master’s course at the University’s Faculty of Oriental Studies and should be intending to make use of the University’s holdings in Islamic art (including, but without limitation, those in the Ashmolean Museum, the Bodleian Library, the Museum of the History of Science and the Pitt-Rivers Museum).

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.

Please ensure that you meet the requirements for entry to your course (see the Course Guide for more information). 

This scholarship is not open to candidates applying for DPhil, MPhil, two-year Master’s courses, Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma courses, part-time courses, non-matriculated courses or to students with deferred entry.

What does it cover?

100% of university and college fees, and a grant for living costs of £13,863. Awards are made for the full duration of a student's fee liability for the agreed course.

How do I apply?

In order to be considered for this scholarship, you must submit your application for graduate study by the March deadline (14 March 2014). All applicants who have secured a place on an eligible course of study within the Faculty of Oriental Studies will automatically be considered for this scholarship by the faculty.

Applications with an outstanding admissions decision after this date, or applications which have been placed on a waiting list, are not eligible for scholarship consideration.  If you do not apply in full by the deadline, you will not be considered for the scholarship.
