A Kellogg College Scholarship is available for graduate students who are starting a course of study in the academic year 2021-22. There is one part-time and one full-time scholarship available. Applications are encouraged from both Masters and DPhil students who are studying in subject areas of current Kellogg Fellows, programmes admitted by Kellogg, or Kellogg College Research Centres.

The value of the award is £7,000 per annum for the full-time scholarship, and £3,500 per annum for the part-time scholarship. These scholarships are tenable over the full course of study, coterminous with fee liability. Annual renewal of the award will depend on academic progress and contribution to the academic life and community at Kellogg.

Students at other colleges will be required to become members of Kellogg College to take up the scholarship if successful.

The Kellogg College Full-Time Scholar will receive priority consideration for Kellogg College accommodation in their first year of study.

An application form will become available in late October 2020. You will need to demonstrate in a short statement (550 word max) your academic excellence to date, the value of your academic or research interests and their potential impact. You will also be asked how you will contribute to the academic life and community at Kellogg. The awarding panel may also consider the information that a candidate supplied when applying for their programme of study in Oxford. Applicants will also need to fill in personal details, and contact details of an academic referee.

Please do not send additional documents or references as these will not be considered.

The academic referee must be involved in the applicant’s most recent academic studies and will be required to explain why they believe that the academic excellence of the applicant is so outstanding as to merit the award of the Kellogg College Scholarship.

The application and the reference must both arrive no later than noon (BST) on Friday 23 April 2021. You do not need to have received an offer for your course or college by the application deadline but the course offer must be received in time for the application to be considered by the awarding panel shortly after this deadline.

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

Eligible candidates will be normally resident in the United Kingdom.

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 part-time DPhil 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 2021.

Everyone who applies for the DPhil 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.
