Graduate Admissions

Scholarships 2024-25

Keble College has a small number of graduate scholarships for graduates starting in 2024. They are of two kinds. Some are linked to the University’s Clarendon Fund and do not require a separate application. Others are Keble-only scholarships for defined categories of graduates and/or courses, and these do require applications.

For both kinds of scholarships there is a general preference for graduates intending to start a new course in a research degree, but applications for continuing students and taught masters are sometimes considered.

Oxford-Emmy Graduate Scholarships
Women with offers to take up DPhil programmes in the Departments of Physics, Computer Science or Statistics, or at the Mathematical Institute, will be considered for the first two scholarships via their departmental applications. There is no separate application to the College although there will be a college interview following the departmental offer. The scholarships include course fees and stipend for up to four years at the standard rate set by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). Oxford-Emmy Graduate Scholars will also join the Emmy Network’s international community of senior fellows, visiting fellows and graduate scholars, which offers opportunities for enhanced professional development and interdisciplinary networking across diverse disciplines ranging from mathematics and physics to biology and economics. The Emmy Network will host an annual conference at Keble College, to bring leading figures from relevant fields to interact with scholars and their peers in Oxford.

The closing date for these scholarships is now extended to Wednesday 14th February 2024.

The College also has some funds to help out with on-course costs for current students. The Graduate Study Support Fund is there for course-related equipment, fieldwork costs, attendance at relevant conferences (especially if a paper or poster is being presented), and visits to libraries or archives outside Oxford. Awards are typically up to £400 a year.

The Keble Association

Thanks to Alumni who have set up the Keble Association, we have some funds for travel and study grants, including for arts, internships and humanitarian projects. Graduates often apply for support to go to conferences – typically grants are up to £600. Applications can be made three times a year.

For when unexpected financial problems arise, we have a Student Support Fund. Its grants can, for example, help out with the final writing-up stages of a thesis. It’s not a bottomless fund, so we do advise graduate applicants to make sure that they can cover their anticipated costs (fees and living expenses) before starting on their programme.

The University also has its own separate funding sources, including for hardship and writing up. You can get details from the university’s webpage.
