Wolfson College celebrates International Mother Language Day.
Visiting Scholarship Scheme
OCLW invites applications for Visiting Scholars who would like to conduct their research while benefitting from the intellectual support of OCLW and Wolfson College.
These will be senior academics (normally those who have reached the equivalent of professor, associate professor or UK University Lecturer level). Applications for VS status must be supported by two Fellows of the College; this will be arranged by OCLW for prospective life-writing Visiting Scholars. Graduate students are not eligible. There is a maximum duration of one year in the first instance for a Visiting Scholarship.
We do not provide funding (or help in searching for funding) for accommodation, travel or living expenses. Elected Visiting Scholars will obtain membership of Wolfson Common Room (entitling the scholar to a University Card and use of the Bodleian Library; dining rights in hall; use of the college library and sports facilities; room hire and eligibility of most College committees). Visiting Scholars will benefit from the intellectual community of the College and University: they may join College clubs and societies (a charge may apply for some clubs), use all the College facilities, attend Guest Night dinners and bring guests to dine in Hall for lunch and dinner. They may also apply to the Accommodation Office for housing during their stay, although there is a great demand, and it may not be possible to meet scholars’ needs.
In addition, successful applicants will be Associate Scholars of the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing for the duration of their stay, and would participate in all its events during that time. Successful candidates will be invited to present a paper on their research, and we welcome any further suggestions for contributions to OCLW’s activities during their residency.
Closing dates for application
8 October, 5 January, 7 April
Send a covering letter, 2-page CV and a statement of the research you will undertake during the Visiting Scholarship (maximum 2 pages) plus completed application form (attached below) to email@example.com
We will acknowledge receipt of all applications. If you don't receive an acknowledgement please contact us again.
