Cruttenden Scholarship

Cruttenden Scholarships are funded by a generous benefaction to the College in 2011.

For 2020-21, the Cruttenden Scholarship will be awarded to a student commencing full-time study for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the subject area of British History or Local History. Eligible candidates will be normally resident in the United Kingdom.

The full-time Cruttenden Scholarship will provide £1000 per year over a three-year period.

The Scholarship is available on the basis of academic merit and is tenable at Kellogg College only.

Kellogg is a lively environment in which to pursue doctoral studies in History. Its Fellowship includes a number of Associate Professors whose research and teaching are in fields of British History. Most graduate students working in Local History at Oxford are based at Kellogg, and there are termly seminars in Local History at the College.

Applicants wishing to enter into full-time D.Phil. study should apply for a place in the History Faculty and must list Kellogg as their preferred college choice.

The application deadline for students applying to the History Faculty is 3 March 2020. Everyone who applies for the D.Phil. in History, to study on a full-time basis, whose proposed research topic is in the field of British History and who lists Kellogg as their preferred choice of college (and who applies at any time before the relevant final Admissions deadline), will be considered automatically, if they hold an offer of a place at Oxford when our Scholarship Committee meets following the departmental decision deadline.
