Applications for the Chevening Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies Fellowships 2022-2023 are now open. The Chevening Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies Fellowships are aimed at mid-career academics or professionals who are dedicated to the promotion of academic activities which encourage a more informed understanding of the culture and civilisation of Islam and contemporary Muslim societies.
The following fellowships are a collaboration between the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and OCIS:
Fellows will undertake a 6-month period of self-directed research focusing on their own project on the culture and civilisation of Islam and contemporary Muslim societies in a global context.
Fellows will benefit from meeting a multi-disciplinary group of scholars focusing on the Islamic world and have the opportunity to develop contacts with relevant individuals, discuss issues relating to the Islamic world, including Islamic history, classical Islamic sciences, economics and Islamic finance, and the study of Muslims in the West. Fellows will contribute to the Centre’s objective to encourage and promote sustained dialogue and collaboration within the global academic community of the culture and civilisation of Islam and contemporary Muslim societies.
This fellowship program will commence in October 2022. Fellows will need to develop their own research project to focus on during their fellowship prior to arriving in the UK. Fellows must reside in Oxford for the duration of their award. OCIS can provide information about accommodation options in Oxford upon selection.
