Graduate Achievements and Prizes
Wadham College offers on-course achievements and prizes for Graduate students.
Who can apply? The Scholarship is open to those reading for, and those who have applied to read for, a graduate degree at the University of Oxford in any subject, and who as John Brookman Scholar will participate in the musical life of the College.
Money available: £3400 in 2022-23
The College will seek to elect a John Brookman Scholar. The John Brookman Scholarship was endowed by the late E. W. M. Brookman, an old member of the College, in memory of his son, John Meredith Brookman (1926-80).
The Scholarship amounts to £3400 in the 2022-23 academic year. The Brookman Fund may also be able to help with certain expenses such as instrumental tuition or hire of a piano. In addition, the Brookman Scholar will be entitled to one free High Table Dinner per week during full term (8 per term). The Scholarship is intended as a supplementary award for those with other sources of funding for their studies. It may not normally be held beyond the fourth year from admission for a graduate course.
Wadham College has a strong and varied musical tradition. Under the direction of the Fellow Director of Music, the scholar will be encouraged to develop musical activities in the College. The College Music Society presents a number of concerts each year in a variety of College venues, including the chapel and ante-chapel, and the Holywell Music Room, which belongs to the College. These include performances by College ensembles including the orchestra, by other members of the College and by distinguished visiting musicians. There are many forms of music-making in College: a Wadham group has been the headline act at the summer music festival Wadstock for the last few years; recent student groups have performed jazz, funk, classical music and many other genres. There is sung evensong in Chapel every Sunday evening, in addition to other occasional services. The chapel choir consists of between 20-30 men and women, recruited from the College and outside, some of whom hold choral scholarships. The Director of Chapel Music is Katharine Pardee, who is assisted by the chapel organist (Julian Littlewood). The Scholar will have the opportunity to play either the Chapel organ, or another instrument as appropriate, at certain services by arrangement with the Director of Chapel Music and Chapel Organist, and to give recitals at other times. If the Scholar is a singer, they will normally be expected to sing in the Chapel Choir and at other College events. The scope of the Scholar’s involvement in the varied aspects of the College’s musical life will be accommodated to their particular skills and interests.
How to apply:
Please email email@example.com a full CV detailing: Your academic and musical qualifications and experience; the graduate course that you are following or to which you have applied; and the names of two referees. The application deadline is Friday 18th March 2022. Applicants should also ask their referees to email their references to the Graduate Administrator (on the email above) by this same date. The successful candidate will take up their scholarship from October 2022.
We anticipate that shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in Oxford during early May 2022. The interview will consist of a discussion of the candidates’ musical interests (theoretical, cultural, or practical in any instrument/voice). Candidates should be ready to talk about their ideas for being involved in, and developing, the musical life of the College. All candidates will be required to give a short performance on their instrument or voice of between a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 minutes.
Applicants are reminded that election to the Scholarship is dependent on admission to the University by the appropriate faculty or department. Applicants not yet on course need not name Wadham as their first-choice college when applying for their degree. The recipient of the Scholarship will receive a place at Wadham should they wish to take up the Scholarship offer. Should the recipient already be on course at another college, they must migrate to Wadham if they wish to take up the Scholarship.
