St Antony's College and the Oxford Department of International Development (ODID) are launching an initiative to raise funds for a joint scholarship, which we aspire to offer from 2023-24 onwards. The Angelines Scholarship will be open to students who apply for any degree offered by ODID with a preference for those from Latin America and whose college of choice is St Antony’s.
The initiative for this scholarship came from Professor Valpy FitzGerald who has been a central figure in academic life at both St Antony's and ODID since 1992. The scholarship will be named after his wife Angelines, who has been struggling with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Latin America is the focus of Professor FitzGerald's academic interests and both St Antony's and ODID currently host a relatively small number of Latin American students which both institutions would really like to see grow. If there are no suitable candidates from Latin America in a particular year, then applicants from other parts of the global south will be considered.
