The Clarendon Fund is a major graduate scholarship scheme at the University of Oxford, offering over 100 new scholarships every year. In 2010-11, there were 297 Clarendon scholars at Oxford from 46 different nations. Awards are made based on academic excellence and potential across all subject areas, enabling the most distinguished scholars to study at Oxford University, one of the world’s top five universities and the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
The University has one goal in mind when selecting Clarendon scholars: to elect the best students worldwide, as decided by experts in each student’s field. This aspect makes the scholarship unique: while many other scholarships stress the need for demonstrated leadership in their selection criteria, Oxford believes that by electing and nurturing the best and brightest minds in any given field the advancement of their study at Oxford will, by its very nature, produce leaders in that field. Furthermore, the process of selection means that the Clarendon scholarly community contains equal number of students from each of the University’s four academic divisions, and this diversity is an immense strength for inter-disciplinary interaction amongst the scholars.
We are delighted to announce that the Clarendon Fund has now opened up to all graduate applicants regardless of nationality. From 1 September 2011, all graduate applicants to degree-bearing courses for 2012/13 entry will be eligible for this prestigious scholarship funding which has, up until now, only been open to candidates with overseas fee status.
By applying for graduate study at Oxford University you will automatically be considered for a Clarendon Scholarship. You do not need to submit any additional documents specifically for the Clarendon Scholarships and there is no separate scholarship application form.
