Eligible degree subjects
Value of award
Course fees (at Home/EU rate) and a grant for living costs for full-time students of at least £14,777. Students on part-time courses will recieve a study support grant instead. Previous Oxford students are advised to check their fee liability on the University's Fees and Funding pages for any applicable adjustments to fee liability resulting from prior study.
The Scholarship is open to applicants who are ordinarily resident in the UK, EEA or Switzerland.
This award is offered in partnership with the Department of Physics.
How to apply
There is no separate application process. All applicants should apply to the University of Oxford under the standard procedures for graduate degrees for 2019-20. Applications should be made by the January deadline for your eligible course. If there are two or more candidates of equal academic merit, priority will be given to the candidate who has listed Wolfson as their first choice college on their University application form. The Scholar will become a member of Wolfson College.
History of award

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.
