Albert Hourani Scholarship

Albert Hourani Scholarship

The Albert Hourani Scholarship supports outstanding doctoral students studying the modern Middle East at Oxford.

Graduate study is costly and the financial pressures of our students are high. The Middle East Centre and St Antony’s College are committed to offering scholarships to the brightest and most capable students, irrespective of their means.

Created through the generosity of Antonians at the time to mark the celebrations of the fiftieth anniversary of the Middle East Centre and to honour the founder of the Centre, the Albert Hourani Scholarship is awarded to students on the basis of academic excellence, financial need and the importance of their research.

As only 20% of the St Antony’s students are fully funded, the Hourani Scholarship can provide critical funding and will ensure the Middle East Centre is able to attract and support students of the highest calibre, enabling them to fulfil their potential without being distracted, or even deterred, by financial concerns.

To enable the Scholarship to continue, the Middle East Centre aims to raise every year £15,000 and allow two awards of £7,500 to be made to a student for the next academic year. Any contribution to the Scholarship Fund would help achieve this target and ensure that excellent students with limited resources are able to complete their studies.
