Lorne Thyssen Scholarship
The Lorne Thyssen Scholarship is open to new students undertaking a DPhil, specialising in Ancient World Studies.
The scholarship covers course fees, college fees and a stipend at the UK Research Council (RCUK) rate. It is offered by the Ancient World Research Cluster at Wolfson College.
Eligible degree subjects
Classical Languages and Literature, Ancient History, Classical Philology, Oriental Studies (ancient areas), Archaeology.
Value of award
Course fees (at the Home/EU rate), college fees and a grant for living costs for full-time students of at least £14,553 (students on part-time courses will receive a study support grant instead). Awards are made for the full duration of fee liability (previous Oxford students are advised to check the University's Fees and Funding pages for exceptions due to prior study).
The Scholarship is open to applicants who are ordinarily resident in the EEA or Switzerland.
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 2018-19. 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.
History of award
The Lorne Thyssen Scholarship is awarded by the Ancient World Cluster at Wolfson College. The Cluster comprises Governing Body Fellows, several dozen emeritus, supernumerary, and research fellows, and more than thirty-five students, who work on a diverse range of topics covering most of the ancient world from Gibraltar to Japan and from the beginnings of civilization to the middle ages. The activities of the Wolfson Ancient World Cluster are generously supported by a gift from Baron Lorne Thyssen.
