Mary Jane Grefenstette Graduate Scholarships


One full scholarship is available for applicants to the full-time DPhil in Computer Science or the full-time DPhil in Philosophy, and who are specialising in the cross-over between these two subjects. The scholarship covers course fees, college fees, and a grant for living costs of at least £14,057. Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course. The scholarship is jointly funded by the University and by Dr Ed Grefenstette, a former lecturer at Hertford College, who named the scholarship in honour of his grandmother. The scholarship is only tenable at Hertford College. All eligible applicants will be considered for this scholarship, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference on the graduate application form. However, successful applicants will be transferred to Hertford College in order to take up the scholarship. There is no separate application process for this scholarship: to be considered, submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline (8 or 22 January 2016, depending on your course). Selection is expected to take place in April 2016. Please see the Standard scholarship selection terms for more information about the application and selection process.
