Award Description

Donald Amphlett was a Birmingham solicitor who died in 1956 and left his money to establish a trust fund to provide scholarships for Chinese students to study Theology and Religion at the University.

In the last three decades, we have welcomed students from the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. The scholarship fund is managed by the University of Birmingham but candidates may also study in the Selly Oak Centre for Mission Studies based at the Queens Foundation, an ecumenical training facility adjacent to the University’s Edgbaston campus. 

Value of Award

The Amphlett scholarship pays for tuition and accommodation fees, either in part or in full. Assistance with travel costs to and from the home country may also be given.

Eligibility Criteria

This award is only available to Chinese students applying to study for a postgraduate degree programme in Theology and Religion.
