Scholarships are awarded to applicants who have demonstrated excellent academic ability, who will contribute to the University’s groundbreaking research, and who will go on to contribute to the world as leaders in their field, pushing the frontiers of knowledge. The University contributes 40% of the funds for these scholarships, together with 60% from generous donations provided by numerous supporters of the University and its colleges.
The donor for this scholarship, Chris Rokos, matriculated at Pembroke College in 1989, where he read Maths. He has spent 20 years in finance.
The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £13,863). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.
You should be applying to start a new DPhil Economics or DPhil Economic and Social History course at Oxford.
The scholarship will be awarded with preference to candidates whose research area matches those of the Fellow in Economics at Pembroke College, Dr Brian A’Hearn. These include research on cities and regions, institutions, political economy, technology, labour markets, human capital, and living standards in Europe (especially Italy, and Britain).
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.
