Scholarships for Graduates

Balliol College offers numerous scholarships for graduate study every year. For admission in the academic year 2018/2019 we intend, if there are candidates of sufficient merit, to make the awards listed below. Where appropriate they may be held in conjunction with other awards, particularly those of the University of Oxford such as the Clarendon Fund, and those of the UK Research Councils.

We will consider all eligible applicants to Oxford for our College scholarships, regardless of whether or not you state Balliol as your preferred college on your graduate application form. If we offer you a Balliol scholarship we will also offer you a place at Balliol, which will take the place of any earlier college offer you may have.

Except where stated in the particulars of the scholarship below, there is no separate application process; you simply need to apply for your graduate course by the relevant January deadline (8 or 19 January 2018). Please see available scholarships with eligibility criteria below.

Not all College scholarships are available every year. The following scholarships are offered by the College, but are not expected to be awarded to new students for the 2018/2019 academic year:
