PhD students in English are invited to apply to Queen Elizabeth Scholarship for PhD students to study at the University of Oxford from 1 September 2016 – 31 August 2017.
Made possible by the generosity of Sir Walter Annenberg, the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship provides a stipend of £8,000 paid directly to the Scholar to support one year at Oxford. The Scholar will receive this stipend in two installments upon confirmation that s/he is registered as a non-degree student at Oxford. The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship will also cover university fees for visiting non-degree students and health insurance for the Scholar, but not the costs of room and board, which should be paid out of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship stipend of £8,000. The Scholar may audit classes at Oxford, but will not be permitted to enroll in classes.
Applicants must submit the materials listed at http://www.upenn.edu/curf/fellowships/fellowships-directory/queen-elizabeth-scholarship no later than 30 January 2016. As part of their application, applicants are required to include written confirmation (a copy of an email is acceptable) from an Oxford faculty member that the faculty member agrees to supervise the candidate during their time at Oxford.
