The University of Edinburgh invites applications for the Dr Lloyd John Ogilvie Scholarships in the UK for the 2021-2022 academic year at the School of Divinity.

Dr Lloyd John Ogilvie was a visiting student at New College in 1955-56. He became a church leader of international distinction and eventually served 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.

  • Two scholarships will be awarded to students who have applied to admission on a full-time basis to an on-campus postgraduate Masters programme.
  • They will study within the School of Divinity commencing in the 2021-2022 academic year and awards are made on the basis of academic merit.
