The Bede Jarrett Scholarship for Women in Theology

3rd June 2020

Blackfriars Hall is offering a one-year scholarship of £15,000 per annum towards fees and maintenance, to a doctoral student in the Faculty of Theology and Religion.

This award has been created through generous donations to the campaign that commemorates the 800th Anniversary of the founding of Blackfriars in Oxford, and aims to support and encourage women students, who are currently under-represented in doctoral work in Theology.

The successful candidate will be starting a DPhil course in the Oxford University Faculty of Theology and Religion and Blackfriars Hall from October 2020.

The scholarship will be awarded on academic merit. The successful candidate will have an excellent Master’s degree, and a promising research project in any area of Theology.

The successful candidate will be eligible for such conference and travel grants as are open to other doctoral students at Blackfriars Hall. They will be subject to such procedures for transfer and confirmation of status as are prescribed in the Faculty regulations, and the award will be terminated if doctoral status is suspended for any reason.

Applications must include:

  • a full CV, including full information about all courses taken at Master’s level, and the title of any dissertation or thesis undertaken in that context
  • a supporting statement of approximately 500 words describing their intended research project.
  • a short description of how their research falls within the research focus of either of the Hall’s two Research centres:

Applications should be sent to Barbara Brecht by Friday 26th June 2020.
