A new PhD Scholarship for students interested in the study of relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims

The Woolf Institute and the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust / Cambridge Overseas Trust are delighted to announce a new scholarship programme that will support outstanding research students at the University of Cambridge.  The awards will be known as Woolf Institute Cambridge Scholarships.

The Woolf Institute and the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust / Cambridge Overseas Trust have agreed to co-fund PhD students at the University of Cambridge.  Scholars will be selected from amongst applicants in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Their research must be relevant to the focus of the Woolf Institute - the multi-disciplinary study of relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Each scholarship will cover the full cost of studying for a PhD at the University of Cambridge, and will be tenable at any of the thirty-one Cambridge Colleges.  Applicants are required to apply to the University in the normal way, and by the published scholarship application deadline.

The Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and Cambridge Overseas Trust were established by the University of Cambridge in the 1980s to support international students at the University.  Since then the Trusts have helped more than 15,000 scholars to enjoy the benefits of study at one of the finest universities in the world.
