Since 2013 the Woolf Institute and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust have collaborated in a scheme of scholarships to support outstanding postgraduate students (PhD and MPhil) at the University of Cambridge.

The award, known as the Woolf Institute Cambridge Scholarship, covers the cost of studying for a PhD at the University of Cambridge and is tenable at any of the 31 Cambridge Colleges. (For details related to the MPhil award, click here.)

The Woolf Institute and the Cambridge Trust co-fund PhD students who are 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.
