This unique scheme offers around 140 new, fully-funded scholarships each year to academically outstanding graduate students, as well as providing a lively and stimulating community of scholars.
Clarendon Scholarships aim to give the most academically-able students not only the life-changing opportunity to study at Oxford, but also the chance to form lasting social, academic and professional networks.
Oxford is proud to be able to offer a very high number of fully-funded scholarships each year, with over 1,000 available for courses starting in 2018-19. Clarendon is one of the biggest of the University’s scholarship schemes, offering around 140 new scholarships each year. Clarendon scholarships are competitive, prestigious and highly sought-after. Like all fully-funded Oxford scholarships, they cover all tuition and college fees, and offer a generous grant for living costs; however Clarendon’s additional appeal lies in its unique community of scholars.
In 2017-18, there are around 400 Clarendon scholars at Oxford representing around 70 different countries.
Whilst there are no quotas by course type, the majority of Clarendon scholars are working towards a DPhil (Oxford's name for a PhD). Scholarships are also awarded for two-year graduate degrees (such as the MPhil or BPhil) or one-year degrees (such as the MSc, MSt, MBA or MFE).
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 is normally sufficient to cover the living costs of a single student living in Oxford. 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.
