Funded Chevening Fellowship offers financial support for individuals to undertake a period of independent, self-driven research at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.

The Chevening Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) Fellowship is a collaboration between the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and OCIS. The Chevening OCIS Fellowship is aimed at 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. Fellows will undertake a period of self-directed research focussing on their own project on the culture and civilisation 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 Center’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.

The fellowship starts in October 2019 for a six-month period of independent, self-driven research at OCIS. Fellows will need to develop their own research-project to focus on during their fellowship prior to arriving in the UK.
