Scholarships

All candidates (Home/EU and Overseas) offered a place on the MSc in Archaeological Science will be considered for a bursary from the Edward Hall Memorial Fund. These bursaries honour Edward Hall (1924-2001) who was instrumental in the development of archaeological science, and helped to establish the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art in 1955.

We typically award between two and four bursaries each year of £4,000 to £10,000. To be eligible you need to apply to the MSc in Archaeological Science programme through the usual application system in the preceding November or January application round. There is no separate application form for the bursary.

If you are offered a place on the programme you will be automatically considered for shortlisting for one of the bursaries. 

Shortlisted applicants may be invited for an interview in March 2020 (face-to-face or via Skype). Bursaries will be awarded to the strongest applicants who demonstrate

motivation for and understanding of the proposed area of study,
sound reasons for applying to the School of Archaeology and the MSc in Archaeological Science, and
evidence that your academic ability and focus are suited to the demands and nature of the degree.
Applicants will be notified if they have been successful by the start of April. At this point an acceptance of the bursary is expected within a couple of weeks.

Successful applicants are asked to inform the School of Archaeology of any other offers of financial support for the purpose of their studies at Oxford. Adjustments to the value of the bursary may be made to take account of these.
