Eric Hobsbawm Postgraduate Scholarships

Birkbeck has been fortunate enough to run Eric Hobsbawm Postgraduate Scholarships for a number of years. They are named in memory of one of the greatest historians of the last century. From 1947 until his death in 2012, Eric Hobsbawm was a loyal member of Birkbeck College.

The Scholarships have been set up to encourage the next generation of talented historians to pursue original, high-quality and exciting research in history by assisting financially with study and research costs.

The Eric Hobsbawm Scholarships have been made possible thanks to many donations from his friends and former students. Birkbeck College gratefully acknowledges the help and support of the Hobsbawm family.

Further Information

Scholarship applications are closed for this year (2022). We hope to announce further scholarships, together with eligibility criteria and how to apply, in 2023, when full details will be added to this page.
