Fellowships, Grants and Prizes

We seek to support Americanists from Oxford and elsewhere as much as we can.

We offer Fellowships to visiting scholars as well as Oxford-based researchers. 

We offer Fourth Year Doctoral Scholarships to support our graduate students as they complete their dissertations, and grants to members of our community for travel to archives and conferences, and other expenses associated with their research.


In collaboration with the Faculty of History, we award two Prizes for students each academic year: 

  • Richard J. Carwardine Prize for best overall contribution to the M.St. in American History
  • Barbara Savage Prize for the best undergraduate thesis in Black History
  • Wylie Prize for the best undergraduate thesis on the History of the United States
