Keble Associations Awards

The Keble Association is a registered charity run by former students of Keble for the benefit of current undergraduate and graduate students. Well over 100 of you received grants last year. The Keble Association considers applications for:

  • Study Grants for materials, equipment, research and other related costs.
  • Travel Grants with an emphasis upon humanitarian travel purposes.
  • Arts Grants for personal or group arts activities.
  • Internships/work experience

Application deadline: Forms and information are sent out to all students by email in 0th week each term, with the submission deadline usually in 4th week.

Study Grants are for costs not normally met by the college or departments, for example research conference costs, compulsory field study and some equipment costs.

Travel Grants are an established feature of Keble life. Humanitarian travel is the focus of our support and the likely benefits of such travel are always carefully considered by the committee.

Arts Grants are given to individual students participating in arts activities such as tours or performances and to arts clubs and groups in college. We are particularly keen to support new arts activities in college.

Internships/work experience grants are available to students in receipt of a university or college bursary, or otherwise able to demonstrate that they are in financial need, to help meet costs such as accommodation or travel not met by a sponsor/employer.

Can I Apply?

If you are a current undergraduate or graduate student then yes you can. Please bear in mind that this money has been given by previous students for our charitable purpose, 'To help by means of grants or loans, past and present members of the college who are in financial need'. So don't apply simply to take advantage of an opportunity – apply if you need it. Our funds are limited.

How to Apply

Application forms and information are sent out to all students by email in 0th week each term, with the submission deadline usually in 4th week.  Students can also request a form from Trish Long ( at any other time. Trish can also advise on the application and whether the KA is the appropriate source of help.

There are certain grant conditions that you will need to meet, and most grants require a report back to the KA that we may post on our website. All Arts, Study & Travel grant applications require a reference or letter of recommendation from your tutor/supervisor.

Have a good year.
