Barnett House-Nuffield Joint Scholarship

The department and Nuffield College will be offering a joint-funded scholarship.

The scholarship is open to Social Policy students only, who are applying for a DPhil (both new students and those already in the department studying for an MSc or MPhil. If there is, however, a very strong applicant for the MPhil wishing to proceed to the DPhil upon completion of the MPhil, we would be happy to consider them too), and is awarded on the basis of academic merit, assessed on both academic track record and potential.

This is a fully funded scholarship. This means that it will fully cover your University fees and college fees for three years, and you will also be paid a maintenance grant at the same rate paid by the UK Research Councils (£14,296 in 2016-17).

All Social Policy students who apply by the January deadline are considered for this scholarship. There is no separate application form for this scholarship.
