- Applicants, whether internal or external, should apply to the University under the standard procedures for graduate degrees (www.graduate.ox.ac.uk/applyonline).
- All applicants for graduate awards will be considered for Clarendon awards.
- Students applying for RCUK 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 new 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 scholarships cover the cost of a full home/EU award, including the University Composition Fee, the College Fee and maintenance costs at the RC UK stipend rate. 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.
