Funding your studies

Please note that all scholarships for 2022-23 have now been allocated. This page will be updated with information for 2023-24 scholarships in due course.

Oxford-Reuben Graduate Scholarships

An exceptional opportunity to enable you to study your passion, live your dream, and transform the future.

We are committed to building a strong portfolio of funding opportunities to support Reuben College students in their graduate studies. This includes full scholarships, and for on-course students, small grants to support fieldwork, conference participation, or other costs incurred on your course.

Together with funds from the University, Reuben College is supporting 30+ scholars in the academic year 2022-23, and aims to support similar numbers, if not higher, for the 2023-24 academic year. Whilst some scholarships cover full course fees and maintenance (normally at the level of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) minimum doctoral stipend) for the duration of the course, others are awarded in conjunction with other scholarships (for example, Clarendon and UKRI) to together provide full funding.

To be eligible, students must usually apply by the January gathered field, and for a course for which Reuben College admits graduate students. 

All eligible candidates will automatically be considered for these scholarships, with no need to provide further information to either the College or University, and regardless of which college (if any) is stated as a preference on the graduate application form. However, successful candidates will be transferred to Reuben College in order to take up the scholarship, as these scholarships are only tenable at the college.

Reuben College is committed to a target of offering at least 50% of its scholarships to students from under-represented groups and is supporting the University’s Academic Futures scholarships.
