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.  

Awards will be made for the following three-year courses for 2019 entry:

Good vibrations: Of earthquakes, elephants, and extraterrestrial life
Wednesday 23 January - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Seismology has come a long way from constraining seismicity and Earth's interior. Owing to recent developments in instrumentation on land, sea, and above, big datasets, numerical techniques, supercomputing and machine learning, we now quantify and understand information from those complex vibrations that continuously excite our planet and its surface at scales from nanometer-scale cracks to global oscillations, and thereby illuminate their underlying processes.
