Funding Opportunities

The University offers a variety of scholarship programmes based on academic excellence, to give the brightest candidates from around the world the opportunity to pursue graduate study. Over 900 fully-funded scholarships are available for new master's and doctoral students in 2016 from the University, our colleges and supporters.

Most fully funded opportunities at Oxford are only available to students about to start a new course. Once you are registered as a student, there are very few substantive scholarships available, so it is vital to explore your options early.

University and Departmental Scholarships    

All candidates for the DPhil whose applications are completed by 12 noon on Friday 8th January 2016 will automatically be considered for all relevant competitive University funding opportunities, including the Clarendon Fund, Medical Research Council funding, and various College funds.  Please refer to the Graduate Admissions and Funding and Costs webpage for this course for further details relating to funded scholarships and divisional  funding opportunities.  

The Nuffield Department of Population Health also awards a small number of competitive scholarships each year to the brightest and most capable DPhil candidates. This scholarship funds the University and College fees for the DPhil and provides a stipend of not less than £18,000 per year for three years.

DPhil candidates are encouraged to apply for other independent funding sources for which they may be eligible. Those who are successful in achieving partial funding for their DPhil studies may also apply for matched funding from the Department of Population Health. Please contact the Graduate Studies Office for more details.
