St Cross Worldwide Scholarships

St Cross College is pleased to offer 6 Worldwide Scholarships for the academic year 2019-2020 for applicants who are normally resident in one of the six continents (Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America and Oceania) with one Scholarship being awarded per gathered field of applicants from that continent.

Each Worldwide Scholarship has a value of £10,000 and is intended to provide financial assistance to an academically meritorious graduate student normally resident in the pertinent continent, who has been accepted into an accredited one-year Master's (MSc/MSt) course at the University of Oxford and who is unable to secure full funding from elsewhere. The successful scholar will be given priority for a room in College accommodation (at the standard rent) for the year of their course.

In order to apply for this scholarship, applicants must:

  • be of outstanding academic ability;

  • show proof of their ability to meet remaining expenses (i.e. minus £10,000) by the application deadline;
