Scholarships

Wolfson will be offering several new scholarships for students starting graduate programmes in 2023/24. 

Support for students is a priority for Wolfson College and in recent years the College has been focused on increasing the scholarship support available. 


  • There is no separate College application procedure for any of the scholarships.
  • 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.
  • Applicants who apply by the January deadline for their chosen course will automatically be considered for Clarendon awards.
  • Students applying for UKRI (UK Research and Innovation) graduate funding may also be considered for a Wolfson-partnered UKRI 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 UKRI 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 rate for DPhil applicants) and a grant for living costs (for full time students the grant will be least £16,062; part-time students will receive a proportional study support grant). 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. 

Wolfson will be offering several Marriott awards for 2023 entry. A list of programmes will be published by 01 October 2022.

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.
