Community Bursaries

Thanks to generous support from David Scrymgeour, St Cross is delighted to be able to award up to three bursaries, worth £5,000 each, to current St Cross College students. Previous Community Bursary recipients may not re-apply.

To be eligible to apply for a St Cross College Community Bursary, you must be a current student of St Cross for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Bursaries will be awarded to students based on their demonstrated achievements and commitment to supporting their own personal development, leadership skills, and entrepreneurial spirit. Successful applicants will have a track record of excelling in areas such as sport, community engagement, the performing arts, and leadership of university societies or community organisations. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate current excellence and commitment in two or more of the above areas. 

These are one-off awards and are not renewable in subsequent years of study. Successful applicants will receive a one-off payment of £5,000 to help support them with the costs incurred by participating in and leading extra-curricular activity. 

To apply for a St Cross College Community Bursary, please complete this application form. All applications must be received by 17:00 GMT on Friday 10 November 2023.

A panel of St Cross College Fellows will consider all applications and decide on awards.
