Fully-Funded Chevening Fellowship at Oxford in Islamic Studies 2020

Chevening is offering mid-career academics or professionals who are dedicated to the promotion of academic activities which encourage a more informed understanding of the culture and civilization of Islam and contemporary Muslim societies the opportunity to apply for the Chevening Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies Fellowship in the UK (OCIS) and OCIS Abdullah Gül Fellowship. 

Course/program Structure:

Fellows will undertake a 6-month period of self-directed research focusing on their own project on the culture and civilization 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 civilization of Islam and contemporary Muslim societies. OCIS is a Recognized Independent Centre for the University of Oxford and provides a meeting point for the Western and Islamic worlds of learning. This fellowship program will commence in October 2020. Fellows will need to develop their own research project to focus on during their fellowship prior to arriving in the UK.
