Scholarships and Prizes 2003: History

DESIGNATED STUDENTSHIPS IN ANCIENT AND MODERN HISTORY

If suitable candidates present themselves, elections will be made to a Bryce Research Studentship and to either an Amy Preston Read Scholarship, a Marquis of Lothian's Studentship, or an Arnold Scholarship with effect from Michaelmas Term in each academic year.

The studentships are tenable for up to one year, either at Oxford, or, with the consent of the Board of Management, elsewhere. The maximum value of either studentship will be £6,800---but any other emoluments accruing to the student during the tenure of the studentship will be taken into account. The Board of Management reserves the right to determine the value of any award within the maximum in the light of all the circumstances.

Candidates must be members of the University who are pursuing research in either Ancient or Modern History for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. By the date on which they would take up the studentship, they must have been admitted to, and not have lost subsequently, full D.Phil. status, but must normally not have exceeded the tenth term since registration as graduate students of the University.

Applicants must include:
(a) a brief statement of their academic career, including attainments and qualifications;
(b) a brief statement on the programme of work in History (Ancient or Modern) which the candidate proposes to undertake;
(c) two confidential references (please ask your referees to hand you their references in a sealed envelope, with their signature across the flap);
(d) a statement of any other emoluments held or being applied for by the candidate.

All candidates will be considered on their academic merits. Preference may be given to applicants who are advanced in their research, and whose research would seriously suffer from an interruption through lack of funding.

Applications, including the two sealed references (one set only, as the Board of Management will consider each applicant for any of the awards in its gift) should be received by Hubert M. Stadler, Graduate Officer, Modern History Faculty, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BD, no later than Friday of seventh week of Trinity Term each year.
