A number of Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships) are offered to students from low-income countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.
This programme is only suitable for candidates who have already received an offer of admission to the University of Oxford and who are of the highest academic ability. Financial need and social commitment are also major criteria for selection. Applicants should be intending to return to their country of ordinary residence following their studies. Priority will be given to students who have not studied at the undergraduate level before.
Two to three scholarships are awarded every year. They cover course fees, a grant for living costs, and one return air fare per year. Funding is for three or four years, depending on course length. You can apply to all subjects in the course listing except medicine.
Deadline: February 9, 2022
