We are pleased to offer two fully-funded doctoral scholarships for outstanding students looking to commence their doctoral degree in September 2021. Each scholarship is worth £90,000 covering both fees and maintenance costs for three years (full time registration) or six years (part time registration).

The scholarships are funded by the Wolfson Foundation, an independent charity that supports and promotes excellence in the fields of science, health, education, and the arts and humanities. Since 2011 the Wolfson Foundation has committed some £20 million to support doctoral studies in the humanities at UK universities distinguished by their research excellence. The programme aims not only to support outstanding students, but also to make a statement about the value of the humanities to society.
