Graduate funding

Application information

Scholarships covering fees, living expenses, or fees plus living expenses, are available to outstanding graduate applicants subject to eligibility.

Deadline: To be considered for funding, candidates applying to start a course from October must have submitted their University application(s) for the course(s) for which they wish to be considered by the relevant January deadline. 

How to apply: Candidates applying for admission to a graduate course by the early January deadline will automatically be considered for their eligibility for funding from a number of sources including the Clarendon Fund; Oxford Colleges; and Benefactors and Trust Funds.

Candidates wishing to be considered for Arts and Humanities Research Council funding should consult the Open-Oxford-Cambridge DTP website.

Candidates wishing to be considered for an Ertegun Graduate Scholarship must indicate that they wish to be considered for this scholarship on their University course application form, and must also submit a supporting statement.

If you apply for a full- or part-time Master's or DPhil course in the humanities at Oxford by the January deadline for your course, you will automatically be considered for a Clarendon Scholarship. Candidates for funding will be nominated by each humanities faculty and awarded on the basis of academic merit through a divisional selection process.

If you wish to be considered for a Clarendon award, you must apply before the January deadline for your course. You can find the deadlines for your chosen course on the relevant Course page.

The Fees, Funding and Scholarships Search tool is a useful source of information on the range of scholarships that are available at Oxford.
