Doctorow Fellowship

United Kingdom
Term: Academic Year

Provides a Columbia College senior with funding for one year of post-baccalaureate study at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford, in a social science or related field

The Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Fellowship, established in 2005, provides one graduating Columbia College senior annually with funding for one year of post-baccalaureate study at the University of Oxford in a social science or related field. The Fellow will live at St. Edmund Hall. Each fellowship provides for direct payment of its recipient’s University and College fees, plus a stipend for travel and living expenses.

Some preference is given for candidates with an interest in the broad sphere of conflict transformation, either during their time at Oxford or beyond.

The recipients of the Doctorow must take up the fellowship for the academic year immediately following graduation from the College. No deferrals will be granted.


Current seniors in Columbia College are eligible, provided they are in good academic and disciplinary standing.

Candidates must also apply separately for admission to their department at Oxford, and the course of study must be admissible to St. Edmund Hall, as this is where the Fellow will take up residence (you should indicate St. Edmund Hall as your preferred College within your Oxford program application). Oxford academic program deadlines vary and it is encouraged, but not required, to apply for the earliest deadline available.

Fellowship awards are contingent on your admission to the degree program proposed within your application and your acceptance to St. Edmund Hall.
