Awards are made for the full duration of fee liability for the agreed course (previous Oxford students are advised to check the University's Fees and Funding pages for exceptions due to prior study).

Residence criteria

Scholarships are open to applicants who are ordinarily resident in the EEA or Switzerland.

How to apply

There is no separate application process. Applicants, whether internal or external, should apply to the University of Oxford under the standard procedures for graduate degrees for 2018-19. Applications should be made by the January deadline for your chosen course. If there are two or more candidates of equal academic merit, priority will be given to the candidate who has listed Wolfson as his or her first choice college on the University application form. The successful scholar will become a member of Wolfson College.

History of award

The Oxford Wolfson Marriott Scholarships have been made possible by a donation to Wolfson College from the late Dr Francis Marriott, who was a University Lecturer and Fellow of Wolfson from 1970 to his death in 2012. Dr Marriott conducted research in the field of biomathematics, and taught statistics. The scholarships are part-funded by the Oxford Graduate Scholarship Matched Fund.
