Balliol College proposes to elect Jowett and Phizackerley Senior Scholars. The scholarships, which will be awarded solely on the basis of academic merit, are open to graduates currently working in Oxford who are reading, or intend to read, for a D.Phil. It is expected that applicants will normally be in at least their first year and not later than their second year of graduate work. The Jowett Scholarships are tenable in any subject. The Phizackerley Scholarship is reserved for those in Medicine and closely related subjects.

The scholarships will be awarded for a maximum of two years. Scholars will take up their award on 1 October 1998.

The value of the scholarships is £1,550 a year. In addition, scholars will receive free meals, and they will be entitled to dine twice a week at high table. The scholars will be entitled to accommodation (for which they will be charged) until they have completed their university residence requirements. This accommodation will be in the Graduate Centre at Holywell Manor.

There will also be Jowett Exhibitions, up to the value of £1,000 each, for candidates who are runners-up for the Jowett Senior Scholarships. These will be restricted to members of Balliol College. The exhibitions are tenable for one year only.

Application forms may be obtained from the Senior Tutor's Secretary, Balliol College, Oxford OX1 3BJ, and should be returned by Friday, 23 January.
