These scholarships will enable outstanding students—chosen on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership and commitment to service—to study, fully-funded, a graduate degree at the University of Oxford beginning in October 2022. 

The broad selection criteria are: 

– Academic excellence. Specific academic requirements can be found under ‘Eligibility Criteria’ below. 

– Energy to use your talents to the full (as demonstrated by mastery in areas such as sports, music, debate, dance, theatre, and artistic pursuits, including where teamwork is involved). 

– Truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship. 

– Moral force of character and instincts to lead, and to take an interest in your fellow human beings.

Deadline: 31 August 2021

– Nationality/citizenship: You must be Syrian, Jordanian, Lebanese or Palestinian.

– Education/residency: You must have received at least five years of education in Syria (see note), Jordan, Lebanon, the West Bank, Gaza or Israel between the ages of 8 and 22 years. The National Secretary and the selection committee will consider some discretion in the case of Syrian applicants; please get in touch early on describing your situation for further advice.

– Age: Upon 1 October 2021, you must meet either of the following criteria: You must be at least 18 and have not reached your 26th birthday (i.e. you must have been born after 1 October 1995 and on or before 1 October 2003).

OR (for older candidates) You must have not reached your 27th birthday (i.e. have been born after 1 October 1994) and EITHER you have met or will meet the requirements for completion of your first degree on or after 1 October 2020 OR the national context led to disruptions throughout your undergraduate education, thereby prolonging the time needed to complete your degree.
