Oxford-Leon E and Iris L Beghian Graduate Scholarships

Two full scholarships are available to applicants to the full-time DPhil Music, DPhil Ancient History or DPhil Classical Languages and Literature. You must have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least five years prior to the start of your course.

The scholarship covers course fees, college fees and a grant for living costs of at least £14,296. Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course. The scholarship is jointly funded by the University and by a donation from the estate of Leon and Iris Beghian. Leon Beghian came to Magdalen College in 1938 to study Physics. After scientific research during the war, he graduated with a first-class degree in 1947, and then undertook a DPhil at Oxford before progressing to a distinguished career in Physics in the USA.

The scholarship is only tenable at Magdalen College. All eligible applicants will be considered for this scholarship, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference on the graduate application form. However, successful applicants will be transferred to Magdalen College in order to take up the scholarship.

There is no separate application process for this scholarship: to be considered, submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline (20 January 2017). Selection is expected to take place in April 2017. Please see the Standard scholarship selection terms for more information about the application and selection process.
