Blackfriars Hall will award a Dominican Jubilee Scholarship for entry in 2016/2017, should there be a suitable candidate. If there is no suitable candidate, the Hall reserves the right not to award the scholarship.
The Scholarship is to the value of £9,000 a year for two years, or £6,000 a year for three years, and will be awarded on academic merit. Retaining the scholarship after the first year is conditional on the recipient having received good academic reports.
The recipient of the scholarship must:
(i) have been accepted by Blackfriars to study for an undergraduate degree in Theology and Religion, Philosophy and Theology, or Theology and Oriental Studies;
(ii) already hold a good first undergraduate degree at the time of entry;
(iii) not be in receipt of significant levels of funding from other sources, such as employers, charities or other funding bodies;
(iv) give an account in his/her application of how his/her studies will be of benefit to the Church and wider society, in the spirit of the Dominican Order.
Those wishing to apply for the Dominican Jubilee Scholarship should apply in the normal way to study at Blackfriars. For details of the University’s admissions process, see www.admissions.ox.ac.uk. In addition, applicants should obtain a Dominican Jubilee Scholarship form by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and should return the completed form by 15 October 2015.
The scholarship will be offered to the successful candidate together with the offer to study at Blackfriars.
