Honorary PhD

Woolf Institute Honorary PhD Scholarships are awarded to outstanding PhD scholars at Cambridge University whose research is relevant to the focus of the Woolf Institute – the multi-disciplinary study of relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims. These scholars are known as Ian Karten Scholars in recognition of the support of the Ian Karten Charitable Trust. 

Awardees of the Honorary Scholarship can apply for seed funding for a workshop or small conference at the Woolf Institute and take part in all Institute events and conferences free of charge. Honorary Scholarship holders are also invited to our closed events. The scholars are either self-funded or have been awarded a fully-funded scholarship.
