The de Rohan scholarship for 2021
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Oxford Brookes University is pleased to offer
two de Rohan Scholarships to
two full-time or part-time students who are holding an offer to do an
MA by Research in the History of Art for September 2021 entry.
The scholarships are open to both UK and EU/International Students (EU/international students full-time only).
The scholarship will provide a
£1,000 payment towards the costs of your tuition fees and will be awarded on the basis of a personal statement.
The de Rohan Scholarship is gifted by the de Rohan family in memoriam of their family members who met and fell in love whilst studying at Oxford Brookes.
Margaret de Rohan writes:
Named for Alison (née de Rohan) and Francis Gaillard, who met and fell in love while reading for their BA degrees at Oxford Polytechnic in the early 1980s. They married in September 1985 and had their honeymoon in the Greek Islands. A year later
they returned to Greece to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
A few months later - on 6 March 1987 - after a day trip to Bruges to see some of the art treasures there, they died together, within sight of Zeebrugge harbour, when 'The Herald of Free Enterprise' ferry capsized and sank in less than three
minutes. One hundred and ninety one other people also died that tragic day.
In early November 2005, my husband, Maurice, was diagnosed with cancer. Despite a major operation and six months of chemo-therapy, he lost his valiant fight on 5 October 2006, and once again our family suffered a devastating loss.
But out of tragedy, good can often flow. It is now my great pleasure to establish a new postgraduate Scholarship - 'The de Rohan Scholarship' - in memory of Alison, Francis and Maurice - which will provide a postgraduate Scholarship in the
Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences for the MA courses in Creative Writing, English or History and for the MA by Research in Art History."
