The Scovil Scholarship in Christian Theology and Art
The Faculty of Theology and Religion and Blackfriars Hall at the University of Oxford are offering a three-year studentship of £12,000 per annum to a doctoral student who can present a project proposal within any area of Christian Theology, with a strong preference for projects in art and theology, or in any fields linked to the work of the two research institutes at Blackfriars: The Las Casas Institute for Social Justice and The Aquinas Institute.
The successful candidate will have already received an offer to start DPhil study at the Faculty of Theology and Religion in October 2023. Priority will be given to candidates who apply to Blackfriars Hall, but in the event that no suitable candidates have applied to Blackfriars, the scholarship may be given to a suitable candidate on the condition that they migrate to Blackfriars. The scholarship is only tenable at Blackfriars Hall.
The successful candidate will be eligible for such conference grants as are open to other doctoral students in the Faculty of Theology and Religion and at Blackfriars Hall. They will be subject to such procedures for transfer and confirmation of status as are prescribed in the regulations, and the award will be terminated if doctoral status is suspended for any reason. The award is not renewable after three years of full-time doctoral study.
Applicants for the award should write to Dr Clare Broome Saunders, firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday 13 January 2023.
Applications must include:
- a full CV
- a supporting statement of approximately 500 words describing their intended research project, and explaining how their research falls within the area covered by this studentship.
The awarding committee will assess applications also on the basis of the materials submitted for the doctoral application to the Faculty, which need not be submitted twice; candidates should ask their three referees, however, to refer directly to their suitability for this studentship in the references they write in support of the doctoral application.
