Clarendon scholarships are competitive, prestigious and highly sought-after. Like all fully-funded Oxford scholarships, they cover all tuition and college fees, and offer a generous grant for living costs; however, Clarendon’s additional appeal lies in its unique community of scholars.

Scholarship Award: 
  • All Clarendon scholarships cover tuition and college fees in full.
  • Scholars on a full-time course receive a generous annual grant for living costs, which is normally sufficient to cover the living costs of a single student living in Oxford. In 2017-18 this will be at least £14,296. Scholars on a part-time course receive a study support grant to help cover their non-fee costs.
Scholarship can be taken in the UK
