The Yousef Jameel Scholarship is generously funded by Sheikh Yousef Abdul Latif Jameel. This fully funded research scholarship is available to one graduate student demonstrating exceptional academic merit and/or potential, commencing a course of study in the history of Islamic art at the University’s Faculty of Oriental Studies.
Am I eligible?
The scholarship will be awarded on academic merit and is open to applicants from any country who are applying to a graduate course of study in the history of Islamic art at the University’s Faculty of Oriental Studies.
Applicants should be intending to conduct research in any subject of Islamic art that the University’s current staff are able to supervise at doctoral level; and/or whose research projects make use of the University’s holdings in Islamic art (including, but without limitation, those in the Ashmoleon Museum, the Bodleian Library, the Museum of the History of Science and the Pitt-Rivers Museum). Preference will be given to DPhil students but funding may be available to candidates who are required to take the MPhil or MSt in Islamic Art and Archaeology before commencing their doctoral training.
Candidates should be applying to start a new graduate course at Oxford. This scholarship is open to candidates studying for degree-bearing courses, with the exception of Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma courses.
Please ensure you meet the requirements for entry to your course, including English language requirements. See the Course Guide for more information.
What does it cover?
100% of university and college fees, and a grant for living costs (rate to be confirmed).
The award is made for the full duration of a student’s fee liability for the agreed course. If your scholarship is offered for a course lasting more than one year, the continuation of your scholarship each year is subject to an annual renewal process based upon satisfactory academic progress.
How do I apply?
In order to be considered for this scholarship, you must submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline (18 January 2013) and you must have secured a place on your chosen programme of study by the expected final decision date (13 March 2013). All applicants who have secured a place on an eligible course of study within the Faculty of Oriental Studies by this date will automatically be considered for this scholarship by the faculty. Applications with an outstanding admissions decision after this date, or applications which are re-evaluated against the later March deadline field, are not eligible for scholarship consideration.
Applicants who are ‘re-routed’ (accepted onto a different programme of study to the one they originally applied for e.g. transferred from an MPhil to a DPhil or from one course to another) should contact us as soon as they are notified of the change in order to ensure that their application for a scholarship is maintained on their new programme of study.
How will I know if I have been successful?
This webpage will be updated once successful candidates have been notified. If you have not heard from us by this time, then your application to this scheme has been unsuccessful. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants individually or provide feedback on applications.
