Graduate Access Awards

Applications for St Cross Graduate Access Awards are now closed for 2020. We plan to offer a number of similar awards for students commencing their studies in 2021. 


Thanks to support from alumni and friends of St Cross, the College is delighted to be able to award up to six bursaries, worth £10,000 each, to students commencing a one-year Master’s degree programme in October 2020.

To be eligible to apply for a bursary, prospective students must have applied for a place at the University of Oxford, and have been offered a place on their respective course and have been offered and accepted a place at St Cross College, by the bursary application deadline, Wednesday 3rd June 2020.

St Cross College Graduate Access Awards will be awarded to offer-holders based on their demonstrated financial need. All applicants will be asked to complete a comprehensive form as part of the application process. All St Cross offer holders who have a place on a one-year Master's programme commencing in October 2020 are eligible to apply for these awards except for individuals who already hold a full scholarship that covers their tuition fees and a stipend for living costs of at least £13,078.

Each award will be worth £10,000 and will be offset against fee liability. Where award-holders’ course fees are less than £10,000 per annum, the remaining award will be paid as a stipend directly to the student. Awards will not be able to be deferred and post-holders must commence their course in 2020.
