The Harmony Scholarships are provided for students to enter and undertake the three-year Professional Doctorate in Interfaith Studies, which was kindly offered by the Chin Kung Foundation.

They are offered to high-quality students from multidisciplinary backgrounds, from around the world, who focus their research on interfaith studies.



The programme seeks to recruit students with:

  • A proven track record of academic excellence, and potential to be an outstanding academic researcher.
  • First class or upper second class undergraduate degree or equivalent overseas qualification in a relevant subject;
  • A Master’s degree in a relevant subject, although applications will also be considered from students who can demonstrate competence at Master’s level, an equivalent and appropriate professional qualification, or significant and relevant professional experience.
  • Proficiency in a second language is desirable, but not essential.

The doctoral scholarships will be awarded to students who intend to register for full-time study as on-campus doctoral students.

Successful candidates will be awarded a scholarship of £15,000 per annum, consisting of tuition fees (£7,500) and a maintenance grant (£7,500).

Further means-tested support can be considered on an individual basis. Scholarship holders will also be eligible to apply for student accommodation at a reduced rate on the Lampeter campus.

The latest cohort of Harmony Scholars joined the programme in September 2018. Currently, applications for the Harmony Doctoral Scholarships are closed.
