Value of award

How to apply
There is no separate application process. Applicants, whether internal or external, should apply to the University of Oxford under the standard procedures for graduate degrees for 2018-19. Applications should be made by the January deadline for your chosen course. If there are two or more candidates of equal academic merit, priority will be given to the candidate who has listed Wolfson as his or her first choice college on the University application form.
History of award
The Lorne Thyssen Scholarship is awarded by the Ancient World Cluster at Wolfson College. The Cluster comprises Governing Body Fellows, several dozen emeritus, supernumerary, and research fellows, and more than thirty-five students, who work on a diverse range of topics covering most of the ancient world from Gibraltar to Japan and from the beginnings of civilization to the middle ages. The activities of the Wolfson Ancient World Cluster are generously supported by a gift from Baron Lorne Thyssen.
