The Clarendon Fund’s purpose is simple; to assist academically outstanding graduate students through their studies at the University of Oxford.
Every year, Clarendon offers over 160 new scholarships. At any one point, there are nearly 500 on-course scholars at Oxford making Clarendon the University’s largest scholarship scheme. There are no quotas by nationality or degree level.
Clarendon scholarships cover course fees in full. This applies to Home and Overseas fee status students.
Scholars on a full-time course will receive an annual grant for living expenses of at least the minimum Research Council doctoral stipend rate, which is normally sufficient to cover the living costs of a single student living in Oxford. In 2021-22, you should expect to receive at least £15,609.
There are no restrictions by nationality or country of ordinary residence.
Clarendon scholars come from across the world: from the USA to Australia, Venezuela to Vietnam and from Norway to Nigeria.
All full-time DPhil and Master’s courses are eligible, as long as you have applied by the relevant January deadline for your course. A list of all the graduate courses offered by the University of Oxford can be found on the courses page.
