Bonamy Dobrée, Professor of English at Leeds 1936-55, is today best known for his work on Restoration and eighteenth-century literature, and for a notable study of Kipling. From the 1920s as a journalist, theatre critic and literary scholar, he was on the fringes of the Bloomsbury group, a close friend of T. S. Eliot, Leonard Woolf, and Herbert Read. At Leeds he is remembered as a supportive teacher and mentor, and his papers now in the Brotherton Library have proved a valuable resource for scholars.
The School will award One Bonamy Dobree scholarship of £6000.
The School also encourages International applicants to apply for the University’s Tetley and Lupton award.
Previous holders of this distinguished award include Tanya Llewellyn (MA in English Literature) and Esther Prokopienko (MA in Postcolonial Literature & Cultural Studies).
Without the extremely generous financial award of the School of English, as an international student with elevated fees, I would never have been able to complete an MA degree at the University of Leeds. The experience was a phenomenal one-intellectually, socially, and culturally. Academically, the degree was highly stimulating, and I completed my dissertation determined, and prepared, to pursue doctoral work. Equally valuable, however, were the many new friends and connections (from all over the world) that I made during my time in Leeds and the opportunity to explore Yorkshire and the U.K. None of this would have been possible without the School’s support.
