Grants and awards


General Awards

The Faculty of Divinity is host to a number of Trust Funds for the support of study and research in all areas of Theology and Religious Studies. Please note that these funds are not normally available for fees or maintenance. The fund managers will consider applications for help with the costs of research trips, academic conferences, and special training not otherwise available within the University. Apply using the general awards application form (available in pdf or word).  Graduate students may apply for funding in advance of conferences or research visits if they provide formal costings. After their journey students are required to produce receipts to the Administrative Officer. Any queries please contact the Administrative Officer.

Awards for Ordinands

There are three University Funds specifically for ordinands or those ordained into the Church of England (Steel Theological Studentship and Wordsworth Studentship) or those preparing to enter the Christian ministry more generally (Hedley Lucas Fund). Apply using the general awards application form (also available in pdf or word). Any queries please contact the Administrative Officer .


If you are in real financial hardship, you should speak to your College Tutor as a matter of urgency.
