The Oxford Graduate Scholarships have been established through a groundbreaking new matched funding initiative to enable the creation of fully-funded scholarships for graduate students of the highest calibre from across the world. 2013-14 saw the very first Oxford Graduate Scholars begin their studies.
Scholarships are awarded to applicants who have demonstrated excellent academic ability, who will contribute to the University’s groundbreaking research, and who will go on to contribute to the world as leaders in their field, pushing the frontiers of knowledge. The University contributes 40% of the funds for these scholarships, together with 60% from generous donations provided by numerous supporters of the University and its colleges.
James K. Anderson (1977, History) has been a very generous donor to History at University College ("Univ") over many years, supporting both students and fellows of the college. The Oxford-Anderson Graduate Scholarship has come about through his endowment of scholarship fund for the support of graduate students wishing to study History at Univ, and reflects his concern that Univ’s strong offering in History be maintained and indeed enhanced for future generations.
The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £13,863). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.
To be eligible to apply, you should be applying to start a new graduate course at Oxford's Faculty of History. This scholarship is not open to candidates applying for part-time courses or to applications from candidates who hold deferred offers to start in 2015-16. If your scholarship is offered for a course lasting more than one year, the continuation of your scholarship each year is subject to an annual renewal process based upon satisfactory academic progress.
The scholarship is only tenable at University College. All eligible applicants will be considered for this scholarship, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference on the graduate application form. However, successful applicants will be transferred to University College in order to take up the scholarship.
Application deadline is January 23, 2015.
