Bonamy Dobree School of English PGR International Scholarship in UK 2020

The University of Leeds in the UK invites applications for the Bonamy Dobree School of English PGR International Scholarship in the 2020/21 session.

The School of English is offering a fully-funded International scholarship. This award is normally for up to three years’ full-time study leading to a Doctoral Degree. This is on condition of satisfactory progress, reviewed at the end of the first academic year.

Bonamy Dobrée, Professor of English at Leeds 1936-55, is today best known for his work on Restoration and eighteenth-century literature, and for a notable study of Kipling. From the 1920s as a journalist, theatre critic and literary scholar, he was on the fringes of the Bloomsbury group, a close friend of T. S. Eliot, Leonard Woolf, and Herbert Read. At Leeds he is remembered as a supportive teacher and mentor, and his papers now in the Brotherton Library have proved a valuable resource for scholars.

This means that the Faculty is able to make a real impact on the world and bring benefits in cultural, economic and societal terms.
