Description

Description

The Clarendon Fund derives its name from its close relationship with Oxford University Press (OUP) and in honour of an act of philanthropy by the Earl of Clarendon. The Clarendon Fund was established in 2001 and offers around 130 fully-funded scholarships each year to academically outstanding graduate students at Oxford, as well as providing a lively and stimulating community of scholars.

 

The scheme was expanded in 2012 to include students from the UK and EU, therefore providing funding for all fee statuses. Throughout this period, the Fund’s aim has remained unchanged; to assist academically outstanding graduate students through their studies at the University of Oxford. Clarendon scholarships are competitive, prestigious and highly sought-after.

Eligibilities

Eligibilities

Selection criteria vary slightly depending on the subject area and whether applicants apply for a taught or research degree.

 

As a guideline, applications are assessed against the following criteria:

 

Outstanding academic record

 

An excellent academic record is essential. The majority of successful scholars usually have at least a first class honours degree or its equivalent. For example a GPA score of at least 3.7, if the mark if out of 4, noting that a lot of the Clarendon scholars achieve higher than this score. Or an applicant must have an outstanding academic record at Master’s level, noting that an exceptional Master’s degree can compensate for a moderate first degree performance. Requirements may vary between disciplines and from year to year depending on the strength of the field. Other evidence 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).

 

Future potential and aptitude

 

Particular consideration is given to an applicant’s future academic potential and aptitude of the proposed course of study. This may be assessed by reviewing references and research proposals to determine evidence of an applicant’s aptitude for research, and the likelihood of contributing significantly to the field of study.

 

Student motivation

 

This is assessed through evidence of the applicant’s commitment to the proposed course as well as evaluation of the personal statement and the referees’ reports.

Benefits

Benefits

Clarendon scholarships cover course fees in full.  This applies to Home, EU and Overseas fee status students.

 

Scholars on a full-time course will receive an annual grant for living expenses of at least the minimum Research Council doctoral stipend rate, which is normally sufficient to cover the living costs of a single student living in Oxford. In 2020-21, you should expect to receive at least £15,009.

 

Scholars on a part-time course will receive a study support grant, to assist with non-fee costs. For part-time DPhil courses, the rate is set at a sixth of the minimum Research Council Doctoral stipend rate. For part-time Master’s courses, the rate is set at a third.

 

In 2020-21, part-time DPhil scholars should expect to receive at least £2,502 and part-time Master’s scholars should expect at least £5,003. This grant may be slightly reduced where course fees cover some other study costs for example, accommodation while on a period of residential study. We will liaise with your academic department to determine the value of the study support grant in these cases
