OCLW Postgraduate Visiting Scholarships

The Oxford Centre for Life-Writing welcomes applications from visiting doctoral students who would like to conduct their research while benefitting from the intellectual support of OCLW and Wolfson College. 

We do not provide funding (or help in searching for funding) for accommodation, travel or living expenses, or any supervision or teaching, however it is possible for visiting postgraduate scholars to make independent arrangements to join the Bodleian library, and to make contact with a potential supervisor. 

A visiting Doctoral Studentship grants the student access to the college’s academic community; dining rights in college; access to Wolfson’s library; membership of OCLW, and all its events, with the possibility of speaking publically about his/her research. 

Applicants must have matriculated as a doctoral student at another university, and have an appropriate visa to study in the UK. The maximum duration for a visit is one term (to coincide with up to the maximum of the ten weeks of an Oxford University term), or the Easter vacation (approximately four weeks), or the Long vacation (approximately fifteen weeks).

Closing dates for application

8 October, 5 January, 7 April

To apply

Send a covering letter, 2-page CV and a statement of the research you will undertake during the Postgraduate Visiting Scholarship (maximum 2 pages), details of a potential supervisor whilst in Oxford, plus a letter from that supervisor confirming their willingness to undertake supervision of the project, plus completed application form (below) to oclw@wolfson.ox.ac.uk
