How to apply

There is no separate application process. Applicants, whether internal or external, should apply to the University of Oxford under the standard procedures for graduate degrees for 2017-18. Applications should be made by the January deadline for your chosen course. If there are two or more candidates of equal academic merit, priority will be given to the candidate who has listed Wolfson as his or her first choice college on the University application form. The successful scholar will become a member of Wolfson College.

History of award

The Oxford Wolfson Marriott Scholarships have been made possible by a donation to Wolfson College from the late Dr Francis Marriott, who was a University Lecturer and Fellow of Wolfson from 1970 to his death in 2012. Dr Marriott conducted research in the field of biomathematics, and taught statistics. The scholarships are part-funded by the Oxford Graduate Scholarship Matched Fund.

Tennyson, Celebrity and Portraiture
Wednesday 25 October -
5:30pm to 7:00pm

This lecture will explore how publishers became responsible for promoting authors through portraiture in the mid-Victorian period. In particular it will focus on Edward Moxon and his role in expanding the readership of both William Wordsworth and Alfred Tennyson. While portraits of Wordsworth were relatively scarce, Tennyson was surrounded by sculptors, painters and photographers, which led to a new and disturbing experience of literary celebrity that had a major impact on his career.
