Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council BGP and the Shuffrey Fund of Lincoln College.

The University of Oxford, in association with Lincoln College, offers two, full-time, fully-funded, doctoral studentships in the field of architectural history, for October 2015 entry. One award will be reserved for the DPhil programme in Classical Archaeology, to support  research in architectural topics falling within that programme. One award will be reserved for the DPhil programme in History, to support research in any field or period of post-classical architectural history. All  applicants for these courses who are deemed to meet the AHRC eligibility criteria, and whose topics fall within the scope of the scheme, will be considered for the AHRC-Shuffrey Studentships, based on their applications for admission to the University - there is no separate application form for these awards. For details on how to apply for admission see: www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/ Applicants should name Lincoln College as their college of preference on the application form.

Further information about AHRC scholarships at Oxford can be found on the Humanities Division web pages and questions about AHRC funding should also be sent to the Division's AHRC mailbox.
