Cruttenden Scholarship

Cruttenden Scholarships are funded by a generous benefaction to the College made in response to its campaign for scholarships to celebrate the ‘coming of age’ of the College in 2011.

For 2019-20, the Cruttenden Scholarship will be awarded to a student commencing part-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 part-time Cruttenden Scholarship will provide £500 per year over a four-year period, with the possibility of extension beyond this, subject to satisfactory progress.

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 University Lecturers 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 part-time D.Phil. study should apply for a place in the History Faculty or, if their topic is in the field of Local History, for a place in the Department for Continuing Education, and must list Kellogg as their preferred college choice.

The application deadline for students applying to the History Faculty or the Department for Continuing Education is 1 March 2019. Everyone who applies for the D.Phil. in History, to study on a part-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 (5 April 2019).
