The Yousef Jameel Scholarship is generously funded by Sheikh Yousef Abdul Latif Jameel. This fully funded research scholarship is available to one graduate student demonstrating exceptional academic merit and/or potential, commencing a course of study in the history of Islamic art at the University’s Faculty of Oriental Studies.
The scholarship will be awarded on academic merit and is open to applicants from any country who are applying to a graduate course of study in the history of Islamic art at the University’s Faculty of Oriental Studies. Applicants should be intending to conduct research in any subject of Islamic art that the University’s current staff are able to supervise at doctoral level; and/or whose research projects make use of the University’s holdings in Islamic art (including, but without limitation, those in the Ashmoleon Museum, the Bodleian Library, the Museum of the History of Science and the Pitt-Rivers Museum). Preference will be given to DPhil students but funding may be available to candidates who are required to take the MPhil or MSt in Islamic Art and Archaeology before commencing their doctoral training. Candidates should be applying to start a new graduate course at Oxford. This scholarship is open to candidates studying for degree-bearing courses, with the exception of Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma courses.
