Clarendon Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence and potential across all degree-bearing subjects at the graduate level at the University of Oxford.

- All Clarendon Scholarships cover tuition and college fees in full and a generous annual grant for living expenses, normally sufficient to cover the living costs of a single student living in Oxford.
- The scholarships are normally offered for the full period for which you are liable to pay tuition fees to the University, which is usually the same as the length of your course.
- Scholars on a full-time course receive a generous annual grant for living costs – which will be at least £15,009 for 2020-21. Scholars on a part-time course will receive a study support grant, to assist with non-fee costs. Scholars on a part-time course will receive a study support grant, to assist with non-fee costs.

Selection criteria vary slightly depending on the subject area and whether applicants apply for a taught or research degree, but include:
- An excellent academic record is essential:
- A high first class honours degree or its equivalent (a GPA score of at least 3.7 if the mark is out of 4, noting that most successful candidates achieve a score higher than 3.7) or an outstanding academic record at Master’s level is necessary (noting that an outstanding Master’s degree can compensate for a moderate first degree performance).
- Information on your overall position within your cohort; and publications (if applicable).
- Aptitude for the proposed course of study: This may be assessed by reviewing academic references, the research proposal, demonstrated evidence of aptitude for research, and the likelihood the scholar will contribute significantly to their field of study.
- Other indicators of high academic achievement may include individual marks on student transcripts; evidence of previous university prizes or awards;
- Student motivation: This is assessed through evidence of the applicant’s commitment to their proposed course, evaluated by the personal statement and referees’ reports.
Application for study may be to a full- or part-time master or DPhil course. You do not need to submit any specific additional documents for the Clarendon Scholarships and there is no separate scholarship application form.
