Dr Lloyd John Ogilvie Scholarships

The School is pleased to invite applications from outstanding international students applying for 2022-2023 entry to postgraduate Taught Masters programmes at the School of Divinity.

Dr Lloyd John Ogilvie was a visiting student at New College in 1955-56, who became a church leader of international distinction, eventually serving as Chaplain to the United States Senate, 1995–2003. His scholarship fund will support the best qualified students from across the world who might not otherwise be able to afford to study at Edinburgh.


The scholarship will cover 50% of tuition fees that are chargeable to an overseas postgraduate student. 


Two scholarships will be awarded to students who have applied to admission on a full-time basis to an on campus postgraduate Masters programme of study within the School of Divinity commencing in the 2022-2023 academic year.  Awards are made on the basis of academic merit.

Eligible applicants should not wait for an offer of admission before applying for the scholarship but an offer of admission is necessary to be awarded a scholarship.


Applicants should hold a UK 2:1 honours degree with a mark of at least 65%, or its international equivalent, in theology/religious studies or a relevant subject.  For North American applicants, the equivalent of 65% is a GPA of 3.40.


Applications for the 2022-2023 academic session are no longer being accepted for this scholarship as the 6th April 2022 deadline has now passed.
