A number of Reach Oxford scholarships are offered to students from low income countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.
Scholarships are available for new students applying for an undergraduate degree in all subjects except for medicine. Not all colleges are able to offer Reach Oxford Scholarships every year. If you are accepted by a college that is not participating in the scheme, this will not prevent you from applying for and being awarded a scholarship. If your application is successful, arrangements will be made to transfer you between colleges.
Eligible to apply for the scholarship are candidates from the low-income countries.
This scheme is only suitable for candidates of the highest academic ability who have outstanding examination results. However, financial need and social commitment are also major criteria for selection. Applicants should be intending to return to their country of ordinary residence following their studies.
The scholarship covers university fees and college fees, a grant for living expenses and one return air fare per year for the period of 3 or 4 years, depending on course length.
How to Apply
Candidates must first apply for admission to the University by 15 October 2013.
Students should note they must apply for admission to the University before they can be considered for a Reach Oxford Scholarship. The University is unable to consider any scholarship applications from students who have not been offered a place at Oxford.
Scholarship applications for 2014 entry will then open in December 2013 and close in February 2014 (exact dates are to be confirmed).
