|Deadline:Course deadline||Full scholarship|
Clarendon Scholarships aim to give the most academically-able students not only the life-changing opportunity to study at Oxford, but also the chance to form lasting social, academic and professional networks.
Whilst there are no quotas by course type, the majority of Clarendon scholars are working towards a DPhil (Oxford’s name for a PhD). Scholarships are also awarded for two-year graduate degrees (such as the MPhil or BPhil) or one-year degrees (such as the MSc, MSt, MBA or MFE).
All Clarendon scholarships cover tuition and college fees in full.
Scholars on a full-time course receive a generous annual grant for living costs, which is normally sufficient to cover the living costs of a single student living in Oxford.

Open to candidates from all countries
Clarendon Scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic merit and potential to graduate students from all around the world. Generally, applications are assessed against the following criteria:
An excellent academic record is essential. A high first class honours degree or its equivalent (a GPA score of at least 3.7 if the mark is out of 4, noting that most successful candidates achieve a score higher than 3.7) or an outstanding academic record at master’s level is necessary (noting that an outstanding master’s degree can compensate for a moderate first degree performance). Other indicators of high academic achievement may include individual marks on student transcripts; evidence of previous university prizes or awards; information on your overall position within your cohort; and publications (if applicable).
Aptitude for the proposed course of study
This may be assessed by reviewing your references, your research proposal, demonstrated evidence of your aptitude for research, and the likelihood you will contribute significantly to your field of study.
This is assessed through evidence of your commitment to your proposed course, evaluated by your personal statement and referees’ reports.
