Number of Awards
Approximately 140 scholarships are offered every year.
All applicants from any country
All Clarendon Scholarships cover tuition and college fees in full.
Scholars on a full-time course receive a generous annual grant for living costs – which will be at least £15,009 for 2019-20. Scholars on a part-time course will receive a study support grant, to assist with non-fee costs. In 2019-20, part-time DPhil scholars should expect to receive at least £2,502 and part-time Master’s scholars should expect at least £5,003.
The scholarships are normally offered for the full period for which you are liable to pay tuition fees to the University, which is usually the same as the length of your course.
Clarendon Scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic merit and potential to graduate students from all around the world. Scholarships are tenable in all subject areas and are open to candidates who apply for a new master’s or DPhil course by the January admissions deadline.
If you apply for a full- or part-time master’s or DPhil course at Oxford by the January deadline for your course, you will automatically be considered for a Clarendon Scholarship. You do not need to submit any additional documents specifically for the Clarendon Scholarships – there is no separate scholarship application form. You do, however, need to apply before the January deadline (10 or 24 January 2020) for your course if you wish to be considered for the scholarship.
