Value of award

The Scholarship covers course fees and college fees.

In 2018-19 this will be at least £14,553. Scholars on a part-time course receive a study support grant to help cover their non-fee costs.  Awards are made for the full duration of fee liability (previous Oxford students are advised to check the University's Fees and Funding pages for exceptions due to prior study).

Residence criteria

Applicants from all countries are eligible.

Partnership

The scholarship may be awarded either in conjunction with Research Council or Clarendon funding

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. The successful scholar will become a member of Wolfson College.
