Following a generous benefaction in honour of Emeritus Professor Keith Hawkins, Oriel College is now offers a scholarship to support one postgraduate student to undertake research into English or American legal history. The first scholar joined the College in the 2021 academic year.
The Keith Hawkins Scholarship is open to candidates of any nationality pursuing a postgraduate research degree in legal history at the University of Oxford. Current University of Oxford MPhil and DPhil students are also welcome to apply, and would be expected to migrate to Oriel College if successful in their application. The successful candidate receives the following benefits:
- Financial award of £5,000 per year (equivalent to 58% of the total annual Home/ROI student DPhil Law course fee in 2021-22)
- Guaranteed College accommodation for at least the first year of their course
All new applicants will also be considered for University funding, in addition to the scholarship.
Status: Open for applications for Michaelmas Term 2023 entry.
