With generous funding from The Wolfson Foundation, we are now inviting applications for Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships starting in the 2024/25 academic year for doctoral (PhD) study in the broad subject areas of history, literature and languages (see below for definitions).

The Wolfson Foundation awards funding to outstanding students who demonstrate potential to make an impact on their chosen field. Wolfson Scholarships will be awarded solely on academic merit. Ideally, the successful applicants should aspire to becoming significant contributors to society, whether in the academic sphere or in other areas of intellectual and cultural leadership.

Definition of eligible subject disciplines

Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships are in three disciplines that align closely with the Foundation’s interests: history, literature, and languages. These are broadly defined, and applicants should note that it is the area of study which is important rather than the name of the academic school/department in which they will be based.

  • History: as well as broad-based historical and historiographical studies, this may include such areas as classics, music, history of art, visual culture, or architectural history, provided the research is grounded within historical methodology.
  • Literature (excluding creative writing): as well as literary and textual studies, this may include research that involves critical theory, theatre, film and other visual media, provided there is a literary element within the research (e.g. the translation of literature to screen).
  • Languages (excluding linguistics): research should be in applied languages other than English. It may involve the study of literary or historical texts, theatre, film or other visual media, translation, or the philosophy of language, provided that the research is focused primarily on a language other than English. N.B. While research can be working with any language, it is expected that the student’s final thesis is written in English.
