The department is a lively community that is recognised internationally as one of the top centres for research and teaching in development studies.
We offer a number of full scholarships (covering University and college fees, plus an amount towards maintenance), which are available to students on any of our courses.
The criteria for selection will normally be outstanding academic ability and citizenship of (and normal residence in) a developing country as defined by the United Nations, with a preference for candidates from Sub-Saharan Africa. Continuation of scholarships in the case of multi-year courses (MPhil and DPhil) will be conditional upon a high standard of academic performance.
No separate application is required. All eligible candidates who are offered a place on the course will be considered.
The Angelines Scholarship
This scholarship was established by Emeritus Professor Valpy FitzGerald in honour of his wife, Angelines, and is funded jointly by Professor FitzGerald, ODID and St Antony’s College.
The scholarship, which covers course fees, is open to students who apply for any masters degree offered by ODID, with a preference for candidates from Latin America, whose college of choice is St Antony’s and who are applying for the MPhil in Development Studies or MSc in Economics for Development. There is no separate application and all eligible candidates will be considered.
