The University of Warwick The University of Warwick is delighted to have been selected as a recipient of the prestigious Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships in the Humanities in 2018.

Since 2011, The Wolfson Foundation has supported a programme across nine UK universities to fund top PhD students in Humanities, in order to strengthen the pipeline of academics in this field. Warwick has been a proud recipient of the award since its inception, and after a review of the programme by The Wolfson Foundation, we will once again be welcoming three Wolfson Scholars in the 2018 academic intake.

  • Information on the Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships and how to apply can be found on the University of Warwick's Graduate School website.

Professor Stuart Croft, Vice Chancellor and President of University of Warwick, commented:

‘Warwick has an excellent reputation for Humanities. It is very important for universities to nurture talented researchers and develop the next generation of academics who will continue to question, challenge and develop new intellectual ideas. The Wolfson Foundation’s commitment to support talented researchers in Humanities is very welcome.’

Wolfson CEO, Paul Ramsbottom, commented: ‘This initiative aims not only to support some of the most exciting students in Humanities, but also make a statement about the value of the humanities to society, and recognises the standard of research excellence attained by the University of Warwick.’

Three PhD scholarships will be awarded in 2018, being the sixth cohort of Wolfson Scholars at Warwick since the award was created.
