(one-year, renewable)

In association with an individual benefactor who has received many graces and favours through the intercession of St Jude, donated funds up to a total of £8,000 may be awarded on a competitive basis to full-time or part-time postgraduate candidates in Catholic Theology / Catholic Studies within the Department of Theology and Religion (both existing students and new candidates in receipt of formal offers) and who are able to share regularly in-person in the academic programme of the CCS. These funds may be awarded as a combination of one or more fixed-term Postgraduate Scholarships (full fees) and/or one or more fixed-term Postgraduate Bursaries (partial help towards fees). The total amount of £8,000 need not be awarded in a given year and may be split between candidates.

Alongside academic excellence and potential, consideration will also be given to personal financial circumstances.
