Applications Invited for Reach Oxford Scholarship

ORG- University of Oxford
Closing Date- 15th October, 2019

About the Organisation
University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. Oxford has a distinctive collegiate structure. Students and academics benefit from belonging both to the University, a large, internationally-renowned institution, and to a college or hall, a small, interdisciplinary academic community.

About the Scholarship
A number of Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships) are offered to students from low-income countries that, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.

Students should note they must apply for admission to the University before they can be considered for a Reach Oxford Scholarship. The University is unable to consider any scholarship applications from students who have not been offered a place at Oxford. The University is not responsible for the content of external sites advertising the scheme and would encourage applicants to read the following details to check their eligibility.

College
Not all colleges are able to offer Reach Oxford Scholarships every year. If you are accepted by a college that is not participating in the scheme, this will not prevent you from applying for and being awarded a scholarship. If your application is successful, arrangements will be made to transfer you between colleges.

Other Criteria
This scheme is only suitable for candidates who have received an offer 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 undergraduate level before.

Course fees, a grant for living costs and one return air fare per year
