Contemporary China Studies Programme (CCSP), School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies

Studentships for the Study of Contemporary China at Oxford 2007–8

The Contemporary China Studies Programme, University of Oxford, is offering up to two full studentships for the academic year 2007–8. These are intended for either: students pursuing the D.Phil in the Departments of Politics and International Relations, Economics, Geography or Sociology (D.Phil students in Development Studies and in History—if their research topics are heavily focused on China and its recent past—are also invited to apply); or students pursuing the M.Phil in Modern Chinese Studies

The studentships are open to both home/EU and overseas students. Applicants should have an excellent undergraduate degree, and for an award for D.Phil study, preferably also a master's degree in a relevant discipline, although this is not essential. Applicants should show evidence of capacity for independent research as well as excellent writing skills in English. Preference will go to candidates who can also demonstrate some proficiency in Chinese.

A CCSP Studentship, which at doctoral level will be renewable for up to three years of study, and at master's level will be renewable for up to two years of study, on condition that the holder makes good progress toward the intended degree, will normally cover university and college fees, and provide a stipend for living expenses. Applicants for these studentships are expected to have applied for other scholarships and financial assistance. Overseas students are expected to apply for Overseas Research Studentships. Home/EU students should also apply for ESRC scholarships as available. CCSP awards offered to students who have won or who subsequently win funding from other sources will be adjusted downward as appropriate in order for scholarship funds to be offered to further candidates.

Application for admission to the University is a separate process and applicants are expected to have completed this before applying for the studentship.

There is no application form for the CCSP Studentships. Those wishing to apply should write a brief message to the Administrator, Contemporary China Studies Programme, Institute for Chinese Studies, Walton Street, Oxford OX1 2HG, or send a message by e- mail to jane.cunning@area.ox.ac.uk, indicating their desire to be considered for funding and including the following information: full name, personal contact details, degree and department (or faculty) to which application for 2007 admission has been made. Deadline for receipt of this information is 10 April 2007. CCSP will endeavour to inform successful applicants of their awards by 13 April.
