DHOxSS Digital Musicology Scholarship

DHOxSS Digital Musicology Scholarship

We invite applications for a full scholarship (covering registration and accommodation) for a student attending the Digital Musicology workshop of the Digital Humanities @ Oxford Summer School. The scholarship is provided by the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Digital Transformations Theme. You can read more about the Theme here.

Eligibility and Application

The scholarship is open to anyone registered on a Ph.D (or MPhil) programme or who has completed their Ph.D no more than three years ago (i.e. passed their viva examination in May 2012 or later). We are particularly seeking scholars who are pursuing musicological research areas (including, but not at all limited to, historical musicology, ethnomusicology, and music theory and analysis) and who can demonstrate how digital technology will enhance their research. Therefore, applications must be in the form of one side of A4 describing your area of research, your intended use of digital techniques, and your expected benefit from attending the workshop.

Applications will also be accepted from those who meet the eligibility criteria and have already registered and paid for the workshop. However, the scholarship is not open to those already in receipt of external funding sources (i.e. if you are registered and someone else is paying in whole or in part for your registration/accommodation/travel/subsistence you are not eligible for this scholarship).

Applications should be sent by email to richard.lewis@gold.ac.uk and must be received no later than 17:30 GMT+1 on Wednesday 17 June.


The recipient of the scholarship will be informed no later than Monday 22 June and will be required to confirm their attendance by Tuesday 23 June. The recipient of the scholarship will also be required to write a report of the workshop for which we will find a publisher.

The scholarship covers the full registration fee for the Summer School and the cost of accommodation at St. Anne's College. It will not cover any further expenses such as travel and subsistence.
