Graduate Scholarships

What's available?

Keble College has a small number of graduate scholarships. 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 full-time graduates intending to start a new course in a research degree, but applications for taught masters are sometimes considered. Any enquires may be directed to

Applications for this year’s awards have now closed. Details of the scholarships available for 2020-21 will be published in late 2019.

The College also has some funds to help out with on-course costs. 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 £350 a year.

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.
