Supporting Postgraduates with New Scholarships

18 November 2020

Trinity has enhanced its financial support offer for postgraduates with a set of new postgraduate research scholarships which are open to applicants to the college for 2021 entry.

The College will be offering several new research scholarships, including a College Scholarship for candidates from BAME backgrounds accepted onto Oxford Dphil programmes in any subject offered by Trinity. Open to candidates for 2021 entry, the scholarship will be combined with funding from another scholarship fund at Oxford to cover full fees (home or international), plus a maintenance grant at the level of a Research Council stipend. 

A new pair of Cecil Lubbock Scholarships will support students in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics and Medieval and Modern Languages (French or Spanish), respectively. These will cover full home fees and a maintenance grant at the level of the AHRC stipend, for the full period that students are liable for course fees. 

Trinity has also created two College Scholarships – one for Maths and another for Computer Science. These will also be combined with Departmental or University funding to cover full fees (home or international) and a maintenance grant at the level of a Research Council stipend, again for the full period students would be liable for fees. 

All students accepted for DPhil courses at Trinity from October 2021 in a relevant subject will be automatically eligible for the scholarships, and there are no additional application forms. 

Valerie Worth, Senior Tutor and Tutor for Graduates, says: ‘Trinity is very strongly committed to enabling the strongest graduate applicants across all our disciplines to take up their place at Oxford through offering scholarships covering fees and maintenance for Masters or DPhil courses. In our five-year strategic plan, the College has specifically  set aside generous funding for this purpose. We are thrilled to advertise ten new DPhil scholarships, for entry in October 2021, as well as funding towards a number of Masters courses. Our Graduate Common Room (our MCR) is very international, and a great centre for meeting other bright early-career researchers.’
