Scholarships

Wolfson will be offering 16 fully-funded new scholarships for students starting graduate programmes in 2016/17.

All 2016/17 scholarships have now been awarded. Thank you to all who were interested in these awards. 

Support for students is a key focus for Wolfson College. Over the past few years the College has greatly increased its scholarship support, and in 2016/17 we will be providing funding for 50 of our students through full or partial scholarships.

How to apply:

  • There is no separate College application procedure for any of the scholarships listed below.
  • Applicants, whether internal or external, should apply to the University under the standard procedures for graduate degrees.
  • All applicants will be considered for Clarendon awards.
  • Students applying for RCUK graduate funding may also be considered for a Wolfson partnered RCUK award. Preference will be given to applicants who have listed Wolfson as their first-choice College when two (or more) candidates are of equal academic merit.
  • As there are specific eligibility requirements for RCUK awards, information should be sought from the department, faculty or the centre for doctoral training.

Oxford Wolfson Marriott Graduate Scholarships

These awards have been made possible by a philanthropic legacy from the late Dr Francis Marriott and from a donation from the University’s Graduate Scholarship Matched Fund. The scholarships cover the cost of a full home/EU award, including the University Composition Fee, the College Fee and maintenance costs at the RC UK stipend rate. The awards will be made in partnership with a number of departments, faculties and centres for doctoral training that may, exceptionally, enhance an award to bring it up to the overseas fee level. 

When awarding these Scholarships, preference will be given to applicants who have listed Wolfson as their first-choice College when two (or more) candidates are of equal academic merit.  

For 2016/17 the Marriott Scholarships will be offered in partnership with the following Departments. Please click on the link for specific information on each scholarship.
