Scholarships

Wolfson will be offering several new scholarships for students starting graduate programmes in 2019/20. 

Support for students is a key focus for Wolfson College and over the past few years the College has greatly increased its scholarship support.


How to apply

  • There is no separate College application procedure for any of the scholarships listed.
  • Applications should be made by the January deadline for your chosen course. 
  • All applicants should apply to the University under the standard procedures for graduate degrees.
  • All applicants will automatically be considered for Clarendon awards.
  • Students applying for RCUK (Research Council UK) 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 scholarship covers course fees (at the Home/EU rate for DPhil applicants) and a grant for living costs for full time students at RCUK rates (currently £14,777). 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. Learn more.

The Korrigan Consort Presents: Hunger & Judith Triumphs
Saturday 27 April - 7:30pm to Sunday 28 April - 9:30pm

The Korrigan Consort is thrilled to present a spring double-bill, featuring Joanna Ward’s Hunger and Antonio Vivaldi’s Judith Triumphs.

Two tales, two women, two troubled souls. One, an artist struggling to form her identity as a creative, a woman, and a mother. One, a noblewoman with the weight of a nation on her shoulders, rebelling against the expectation of women to sacrifice. Both struggle under the thumb of patriarchs and patriarchy, with stories reaching across time.

Imagining Madness
Tuesday 30 April - 1:30pm to 5:30pm

How has madness been perceived and represented by composers, biographers, medical professionals, and people who have experienced it first-hand? How should we conceptualise madness as scholars? This interdisciplinary colloquium features various speakers, and aims to give researchers who are interested in this subject an opportunity to meet one another, hear about each other’s work, and to discuss the challenges of writing about experiences and perceptions of madness and mental illness.
