Nuffield College is delighted to be offering the Stubbings-Deutsch Graduate Scholarship in Global African History with effect from the 2024/25 academic year. This scholarship is open to applicants from any country who apply for graduate research study (DPhil) in History at the University of Oxford with a specialism in Global African History. “Global” can be understood to refer to the study of any aspect of African history which places it in a global context or which includes the impact of external influences and connections.

Scholarship value

The Stubbings-Deutsch Graduate Scholarship will cover University course fees and will provide a grant for living costs (equivalent to the UKRI maintenance grant level) for the duration of the fee liability of the successful applicant’s course of study. The maximum expected annual value of the scholarship (in 2023/24 rates) is: £30,790 (for full-time course fees, at Overseas fee rate) and £18,662 (for the living costs), making a total of £49,452 (this will be adjusted to reflect any increases in fees and living costs grant).

Eligibility

To be considered for this scholarship, candidates must apply for a graduate research course (DPhil) in History in the normal way via the University’s graduate admissions system by the January deadline: 12 noon, UK time, on Friday 5th January 2024.The eligibility criteria for the scholarship are as described in the University’s admissions website under “Entry Requirements”: as a minimum, prospective candidates should hold or be predicted to achieve the following UK qualifications or their equivalent:

  • a master's degree with distinction or a high pass (a minimum of 68% overall and 68% for the dissertation); and
  • a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours (a minimum of 68% overall and 68% for the dissertation); in history or cognate disciplines.

Candidates may decide to apply without a prior master's degree in history, and in this case they should ensure that they link their proposed thesis topic with their previous expertise in their application.

Application Process

There is no separate scholarship application process or extra supporting documentation required. The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence and fit with the subject of the scholarship, as evidenced in the candidates’ graduate application. The selection will be made by representatives of Nuffield College and the Faculty of History.

Oxford’s research students also become members of an Oxford college, and the successful applicant will be offered a place at Nuffield College (if they have selected or been placed at a different college during their application process, they will be moved to Nuffield College in order to take up the scholarship). It is expected that the holder of the scholarship would be involved in the activities of the Oxford Centre for Global History (for example, attending and assisting with workshops, seminars and lectures).
