Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships in the Humanities
5 October 2012
Wolfson Foundation seeks to support excellence. Drawing on its history
of support for higher education and interest in the humanities, the
Foundation is offering 3 postgraduate research awards in the humanities.
These will be for 3 areas in history, literature and languages.
The intention is that Wolfson Scholarships will be awarded to outstanding students who demonstrate the potential to make an impact on their chosen field. Wolfson Scholarships Will be awarded solely on academic merit. Ideally the successful students would aspire to an academic career.
Wolfson Scholarships will be available in three disciplines that align closely with the Foundation’s interests: history, literature and languages.
The awards are available for doctoral research only, and will be paid over three years (or up to six years part time). For full-time students, it is expected that students complete their doctorate in three years.
Students should have an outstanding academic record, usually a first class honours degree at undergraduate level and a Master’s degree from a recognised university in a cognate field of study to their proposed doctoral research.
Awards are for students beginning their doctoral study at the start of the academic year 2013-14.
Level of award
The value of each award £26,000 per annum on a full time
basis) the award will cover fees, maintenance and will include an
element for research and training costs.
Definition of subject disciplines
The three disciplines that the programme covers may
be broadly defined.
- History - As well as broad-based historical and historiographical studies, this may include such areas as classics, history of art, or architectural history, provided the research is grounded within historical methodology.
- Literature - As well as literary and textual studies, this may include research that involves critical theory or film and other visual media, provided there is a literary element within the research (e. g. translation of literature to screen).
- Languages Research will be in applied languages rather than linguistics. It may involve the study of literary or historical texts, where these are in languages other than English.
Point of contact
Please find more information on the website of the Faculty Institute for Graduate Studies.
Deadlines for applications will be confirmed by November 2012.
