The African Studies Committee invites applications for the ORISHA Studentship for research in the Humanities in Africa from persons who will be registered as graduate students of the University from October 2010. Students may be registered in any of the following disciplines: African Studies, Social and Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Development Studies, History, Human Geography, Literature, Politics and International Relations, Religious Studies. Proposals must include a major focus on Africa at The University of Oxford, United Kingdom.

Applicants for the scholarship may be new candidates for admission to the University, or already registered as graduate students. The University of Oxford academic admissions procedure is separate from that for this scholarship.

For further details see the University website:

Those applying to the University for the first time should ensure that their application for entry is made before the deadline for this scholarship. The scholarship can only be awarded to a student who has been accepted for study at the University.

The scholarship alternates between St Cross and St Antony’s College. New and continuing students should name St Cross College as their college of first choice on their University and scholarship application form.

The scholarship is variable in the amount awarded. Generally, it will cover college and university fees and a maintenance allowance.

Students from African countries are strongly encouraged to apply. The award is available for three-year doctoral degrees. Renewal for two and three year periods is subject to satisfactory progress. Overseas students are encouraged to apply for supplementary funds such as the Clarendon Fund, or other sources both in their home countries and in Oxford. (For further details of other awards, see the University website.)

Applications and references should be sent to the administrator by 12 March 2010. E mail applications are accepted.
