ESRC Scholarships in Migration Now Available
We are pleased to announce that the University of Oxford has recently become an ESRC Doctoral Training Centre. Within this 3 ESRC scholarships have been allocated to a Migration Studies Pathway. It is not too late to apply for this year’s intake.
The scholarships are open to students applying to either the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies and the MSc in Migration Studies (and intending to continue on to a DPhil), or to students applying directly for admission to a DPhil on a migration-related topic.
This pathway recognises the University’s research strength in interdisciplinary migration studies, based in the ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), the International Migration Institute (IMI), and the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC). Please visit http://www3.qeh.ox.ac.uk/teaching/migration_scholarships.pdf for further information.
How to apply
Applicants should first apply to the university for the degree that they wish to obtain through the standard on-line application procedure <http://compas.createsend1.com/t/r/l/ykjidud/fhuiioi/t> – deadline Friday 11th March 2011.
Application for ESRC funding is separate (there is no application form). Applications should consist of two things:
(1) a doctoral-level proposal (3-4 pp.) containing a description of the project, the problem to be addressed and the methods to be used, together with a brief timetable for the proposed research; and
(2) a curriculum vitae. Applicants for 1 + 3 (MSc + DPhil) may like to warn their referees, who have submitted references to support their application to the university for the MSc, that they may also be approached for a statement about the candidate’s suitability for doctoral work.
Applications for the ESRC funding should be sent to:
Director of Graduate Studies, c/o Ms Marina Kujic, Department of International Development, University of Oxford, 3 Mansfield Road, Oxford OX1 3TB
by 12 noon on Friday 18th March 2011. (We are unable to accept electronic applications)
All applicants must satisfy the ESRC’s citizenship and residence requirements and are advised to acquaint themselves with relevant ESRC sources of information on these requirements directly. EU citizens are eligible for ‘fees only’ awards.
