Jesus College Oxford Graduate Scholarship, generously funded by members of Jesus College History alumni.

This scholarship is linked to the Globalising and Localising the Great War (GLGW) project, History Faculty, University of Oxford, for research on the First World War.

We wish to encourage applications for proposed doctoral theses to be based in the History Faculty that relate to the main project areas of GLGW:

  • The Global-Imperial Dimension
  • The Economics of War and Peace
  • Global War and World Religions
  • Military Law and Military-Civil Relations
  • Global Cultural Representations of Conflict

When making the application it would be helpful to use the phrase ‘This proposed topic would fit with the Globalizing and Localizing the Great War Programme’ in the thesis proposal and to mention a member of the Programme as a prospective supervisor. We would wish particularly to encourage transnational and comparative projects, and would also welcome interdisciplinary projects.

Eligibility – Home/EU applicants
