The Academic Registrar is the first port of call for all current student enquiries, including progression forms, disability matters, exams and scholarships/awards.
Financial support for students
Please note that the College will not be accepting or processing any travel grants from late July through to the end of August 2017. If you wish to submit an application for travel taking place in August or early September, please ensure the application is submitted by Tuesday 25 July, 2017.
You must be a current student in order to apply for the following bursaries, travel awards and hardship grants.
College Fee Bursaries
College fee bursaries are principally awarded on the basis of hardship. In deciding between candidates with equal needs, the College will give regard to academic merit and whether bursaries have been awarded previously. All current Wolfson students who in 2017-18 will be entering their second year or beyond of their current course, and self-funding their fees can apply. Applications for 2017 have now closed.
College Hardship Fund
The College Hardship Fund is a discretionary fund intended to provide short-term financial support for students experiencing unforeseeable financial difficulties. To be awarded a loan or grant students must be enrolled and be in good academic standing. Doctoral students who have submitted their thesis are not eligible for a hardship grant, although applications for a loan may be considered. All applications are considered on a case by case basis. Exceptionally, a further award may be made, but the fund is not able to provide long-term recurrent support for students. Applications for hardship funds are considered by the Senior Tutor and Bursar. There is an appeals panel headed by the Vicegerent and including two other fellows. Further information about the procedure is available on the application form.
To apply, please complete a College Hardship Application Form and return it to the Academic Office. There are also University Hardship Funds to which you may be eligible to apply, with information available on the University website at: http://www.ox.ac.uk/students/fees-funding/assistance/hardship. Please contact the Senior Tutor for more information.
George Peters Bursary
A bursary of £500, in the name of Professor George Peters, who was a Fellow of the College (1980-2001) and Vicegerent (1991-93), is made annually each year. It is open to students from developing countries currently at Wolfson College and is awarded on the grounds of financial hardship. Applications for 2017 have now closed.
Travel, Conference and Fieldwork Grants for Current Students
The College awards travel grants to the value of about £40,000 annually. Some of the named travel awards are open to students who are not members of Wolfson.
The University also offers some support for travel and research abroad. Details can be found on the International Opportunities page under the Fees and Funding section of the Oxford website.
