Deadline: Monday 5 February 2018.

DPhil programme applications should be made by the University's January Application Deadline.

Value: Full funding (University and College fees, plus living costs at the Research Council UK minimum stipend rate) for up to 3 years

Restrictions: Available to any student currently undertaking a taught Masters programme at Oxford University OR who completed a taught Masters at Oxford in academic year 2016/17, and planning to proceed to a DPhil in October 2018.

This scholarship is open to any student fitting the above criteria, studying in a subject area relevant to the college (please check that GTC accepts students on your chosen programme by referring to the Colleges tab on the relevant course page). 

It is not necessary to select GTC as your preferred college in order to apply, but the successful candidate will be required to migrate to GTC to take up the scholarship if already accepted elsewhere.

In order to apply for this scholarship, DPhil programme applications should be made by the University's January deadline. See how to apply to the University. Applicants should also submit the following directly to GTC by the deadline date above:

  • Personal statement (two pages)
  • Outline of proposed research, accessible to non-specialists (one page)
  • Curriculum vitae (two pages)
  • List of funding sources applied to and any funding already in place
  • Reference from your Oxford Masters academic supervisor (preferably sent directly to Marina Prosperi). This should not be a copy of your GSS report or other generic report, but should relate specifically to your suitability as a DPhil student and scholarship holder.

Please keep to the specified maximum document lengths. Do not send additional documents as these will not be considered. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all documents (including the reference) arrive by the specified deadline. The awarding panel may also refer to information in a candidate's programme application.

The main criteria for the award will be:

  • your intellectual trajectory (the purpose of your current and proposed programme, and what you intend to do in the future)
  • the fit of your proposed research with the academic activities of the college (read more about GTC's academic activities)
  • your potential engagement with the wider life of the college.

You should ensure that your personal statement covers these three areas.

All materials should be emailed to Marina Prosperi, the Admissions Administrator, by 5pm on the deadline date. Interviews will be held in early March 2018 (Hilary term, week 8). Shortlisted applicants will be expected to attend in person.
