Chateau Thierry postcard

The RAI seeks applications for a scholarship (2018-2021) for a D.Phil. in History, specialising in the First World War. The scholarship is available to applicants who are ordinarily resident in the UK/EU/European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland and will provide at least £18,000 per annum to cover course fees, college fees and a grant for living costs. Awards are made for the full duration of fee liability for the course.

The scholarship will be known as the Captain Hon. Harold Alfred Vyvyan St. George Harmsworth Graduate Scholarship on World War One and is funded by the RAI in association with the Faculty of History’s Globalising and Localising the Great War (GLGW) programme and Pembroke College. It has been made possible thanks to a generous donation from the Rothermere Foundation.

The holder of the scholarship will be part of the RAI’s and GLGW’s community of scholars, working alongside leading academics and graduate students exploring various aspects of the First World War and the United States in the early 20th century.

We wish to encourage applications for proposed doctoral theses to be based in the History Faculty that focus wholly or in part on the United States and the genesis or implications of the First World War. The time period can encompass the long durée of 1900-1930.
