The Centre of Islamic Studies offers financial awards to those undertaking postgraduate study at the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Cambridge whose research is connected to the mission of the centre. The awards may be held at the Masters (funded for 1 year) or the PhD level (funded for 3 years). Applicants with relevant research interests are considered automatically as part of the normal application process to pursue postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.
The awards will make a contribution towards either University of Cambridge and college fees or maintenance fees. The contribution may be partial or the full amount. Successful candidates will be required to take part in the seminars and research and outreach activities of the Centre.
Applications for 2023/24 will open on 01 September 2023 and close on 1 December 2023 (earlier for PhD applicants applying to start in the Easter term). Preference will be given to students applying to the Department of Middle Eastern Studies.
Successful applicants will be notified by the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.
