Application call for the 2022 University of Oxford Scholarships – Fully Funded. The scholarship is open to all nationalities and the deadline is 22nd January 2022. Clarendon not only offers over 150 new, fully-funded scholarships each year to assist outstanding graduate scholars, but offers the opportunity to join one of the most active, highly international, and multidisciplinary communities at Oxford.
The Clarendon Fund’s purpose is simple; to assist academically outstanding graduate students through their studies at the University of Oxford.
Originally established to support Overseas students, the Clarendon Fund first welcomed scholars to Oxford in 2001. The scheme was expanded in 2012 to include students from the UK and EU, therefore providing funding for all fee statuses. Throughout this period, the Fund’s aim has remained unchanged; to assist academically outstanding graduate students through their studies at the University of Oxford.
Clarendon scholarships are competitive, prestigious, and highly sought-after. Like all fully-funded Oxford scholarships, Clarendon covers course fees and provides a generous grant for living expenses. This funding helps reduce the financial barriers that may stand in the way of the best students, from across the world, coming to study at Oxford.
When selecting Clarendon scholars, the University has only one goal in mind: to choose the best students worldwide, as decided by experts in each student’s field. Future potential is an essential part of the Oxford process. Oxford believes that selecting and nurturing the brightest and best minds, will pave the way for future leaders in any given field. Clarendon scholars are increasingly taking on leadership roles and applying their knowledge and skills to the wider environment outside Oxford.
This scholarship would cover your Tuition Fee along with a Per Annum stipend that is £15,009.
Selection criteria vary slightly depending on the subject area and whether applicants apply for a taught or research degree.
As a guideline, applications are assessed against the following criteria:
An excellent academic record is essential. The majority of successful scholars usually have at least a first-class honors degree or its equivalent. For example, a GPA score of at least 3.7, if the mark if out of 4, noting that a lot of the Clarendon scholars achieve higher than this score. Or an applicant must have an outstanding academic record at the Master’s level, noting that an exceptional Master’s degree can compensate for a moderate first-degree performance. Requirements may vary between disciplines and from year to year depending on the strength of the field. Other evidence of high academic achievement may include individual marks on student transcripts; evidence of previous university prizes or awards; information on your overall position within your cohort; and publications (if applicable).
Particular consideration is given to an applicant’s future academic potential and aptitude of the proposed course of study. This may be assessed by reviewing references and research proposals to determine evidence of an applicant’s aptitude for research and the likelihood of contributing significantly to the field of study.
This is assessed through evidence of the applicant’s commitment to the proposed course as well as evaluation of the personal statement and the referees’ reports.
