Faculty of Theology Graduate Studentships 2009
The Board of the Faculty of Theology proposes to offer a limited number of graduate studentships, tenable from Michaelmas Term 2009. Some money will be available from the following trust funds:
(a) Hall-Houghton Fund—study of Greek Testament Studies, Septuagint version of the Hebrew Scriptures in relation to the Hebrew Bible and Greek Testament, Syriac versions of the Holy Scriptures.
(b) Denyer and Johnson Fund—available to graduate students reading for higher degrees in Theology.
(c) Hensley Henson Fund—available to graduate students reading for higher degrees in Theology.
(d) Nora Taylor Fund—preference is usually given to AHRC-funded students in the fourth year of a doctoral programme whose work is of sufficient quality to justify an award.
Studentships may be tenable with a studentship at a college. The amount of the awards will be decided by the Theology Studentships' Committee.Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence and financial need. Should awards be made to cover University/college fees, such awards will be payable at the 'home' rate. Those students paying fees at the 'overseas' rate will be expected to make up the difference.
Applications are invited from graduates reading for higher degrees under the Board of the Faculty of Theology. Applicants for admission to the status either of Probationer Research Student (this includes M.St Research) or Registered Master of Philosophy Student from Michaelmas Term 2009 are also eligible to apply. New admissions, and those who already hold either Probationer Research Student (M.St research included) or Registered Master of Philosophy Student status should submit the following materials to Mrs E.A. Macallister, Theology, 41 St Giles', Oxford OX1 3LW, to arrive not later than Friday, 20 March 2009:
(i) a description of the research that the candidate intends to pursue for the degree of D.Phil;
(ii) two academic references in sealed envelopes;
(iii) a full academic curriculum vitae, including academic records;
(iv) a sample of scholarly writing not exceeding 5,000 words in length;
(v) a statement of funds currently available for the academic year for which you intend to apply, and details of any funds received thus far in your graduate programme.
Applicants should indicate whether, if they were offered a studentship in conjunction with a studentship at a college, they would be free to become a member of that college.
