Scholarships
The Queen’s College offers a number of graduate scholarships, which are subject to certain criteria.

Awarded through the University's Clarendon Scheme:

The John P Clay Graduate Scholarship in Manuscript and Text Cultures: Sanskrit

We are pleased to offer a fully-funded graduate scholarship for up to a maximum of three years for a DPhil student in Oriental Studies whose research focuses on Manuscript and Text Cultures with a special focus on Sanskrit (including all areas, historical periods, and aspects of this field). The John P Clay Graduate Scholarship in Manuscript and Text Cultures: Sanskrit covers course fees, College fees and a grant for living costs at the same rate as provided by the Clarendon Scholarships. Awards are made for the period of fee liability for the agreed course. The John P Clay Graduate Scholarship in Manuscript and Text Cultures: Sanskrit has been established thanks to a generous donation by the JJC Foundation (founded by John P Clay, Oriental Studies, 1954 and his wife Jennifer Coutts Clay) in support of Manuscript and Text Cultures: Sanskrit at The Queen’s College.

The Barns Studentship

The College offers the Barns Studentship in Egyptology, named after Prof J W B Barns (1912–1974), which is open to those who intend to begin postgraduate research in Egyptology or are already undertaking such research. The College proposes to elect a Barns Student with effect from 1 October 2018. Candidates must by then have passed all examinations required for the degree of Bachelor of Arts and will be required to become members of the College (if not already such) and to be either starting or already undertaking a postgraduate research degree in Egyptology at Oxford. The Studentship will be set at the level of the University and College graduate fee, plus a maintenance grant of £13,726. The Studentship is for one year only; if awarded to a student starting a degree, re-election for further years is possible, subject to the satisfactory academic progress of the holder and Governing Body approval. The maximum length of the Studentship will normally be no more than three years.

Applications, in the form of a curriculum vitae, a supporting statement of around 2,000 words outlining the planned research and a covering letter should be sent to Mrs Joyce Millar, Academic Administrator, no later than 1 February. Candidates should also request two referees to send letters of support to the Academic Administrator by the closing date.
