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 or MSc (Res) programme at Oxford University OR who completed a taught Masters or MSc (Res) at Oxford in academic year 2017/18, and planning to proceed to a DPhil in October 2019.

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

It is not necessary to select Green Templeton as your preferred college in order to apply, but the successful candidate will be required to migrate to Green Templeton 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 relevant January deadline. See how to apply to the University. All information on your University application will be taken into account, including your outline of proposed research, CV, list of funding sources applied to, and your references. You do not need to send these materials again to the college; however, applicants should also submit the following directly to Green Templeton by the deadline date above:

A personal statement (maximum two pages) including your full name and contact details, details of the DPhil programme you have applied for, and outlining your potential academic and personal contribution to the life of the college. Do not send additional documents as these will not be considered.

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 Green Templeton’s academic activities)
  • your potential engagement with the wider life of the college.

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

Your personal statement should be emailed to the Admissions Administrator. Scholarship shortlisting decisions will be made soon after the departments have made decisions on who will be made an offer, around 22 March 2019. Shortlisted applicants will be expected to attend an interview in person. Interviews are expected to take place in the week commencing 8 or 15 April.
