Applications for awards (of up to a thousand pounds) from the Crewdson Trust are invited from Oxford students doing advanced degrees in Theology. The aims of the trust are to promote study and research in Christian theology relevant to the production of contemporary re-statements of the Christian faith or its application, and also to encourage research into the role of religion in eliminating violence and promoting peace. Preference will be given to mature students and to those studying or wishing to study at Harris Manchester College, Oxford (although in practice this does not prevent successful applications from other colleges). The trustees may also award travelling bursaries, book bursaries and prizes relevant to the above aims. Priority for grants will be given to those who are not fully funded or have a very small income and grants will generally be restricted to UK residents studying at the University of Oxford.
Anyone wishing to apply should write to the Secretary to the Crewdson Trust, Dr Eric Eve, Harris Manchester College (email@example.com). Applicants will then be sent a form to complete and return to the Secretary, asking for a brief description of their studies and how they match the aims of the trust, a financial statement providing evidence of need, a reference from their supervisor and a current CV. Applications will only be considered once all these materials have been received. The closing date for this year’s applications is 25th January 2021, and the trustees will decide on the making of awards at the start of February.
