Apply for Oxford University – Refugee Academic Futures Scholarship (2024)

Closes April 2024

Funding for graduate courses is competitive, but the University of Oxford offers more support than you might think. For example, for the 2022-23 academic year, just over 48% of our new graduate students received full or partial funding from the University or other funders.

Refugee Academic Futures Scholarship

The Refugee Academic Futures Scholarship is available for applicants applying to any one-year full-time master’s course, or two-year part-time master’s course, at Oxford who have lived experience of displacement. 

The scholarship covers course fees and provides a grant for living costs. Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course. 

To be considered for this scholarship, submit your application for graduate study by the December or January deadline (whichever is relevant to your course) ensuring you select the ‘refugee status’ box on the application form. Eligible applicants will then be invited to submit an application for the scholarship in April 2024. Only applicants who submit the scholarship application will be considered for the award. 

This scholarship is not open to applications from candidates who hold deferred offers for 2024-25.

When undertaking your funding search you should consider the following:

  1. Do not delay! Start thinking about the different funding options available to you as soon as you decide to apply to Oxford – do not wait until you have an offer of a place. You need to ensure you have funding in place in good time to start your course.
  2. Look for funding from both the University of Oxford and external sources. Receiving an offer of a place to study at Oxford does not necessarily mean that we can also offer you funding. However, there are a range of other options open to our graduate students. After you have read all the sections on this page about the scholarships, Research Council funding and studentships that the
  3. Do not wait until you get here to think about funding for future years. The vast majority of Oxford scholarships are open to new graduate students only. Funding options for on-course students are extremely limited. You should therefore be confident that you can fund your whole course, including living costs.
  4. Do not assume you can earn your way through your studies. If you are a full-time student, there will not be much time to take on paid work, and if you are a part-time student, you will need to ensure that work does not impact on your studies.

Unless otherwise stated, you will be considered automatically for these scholarships if:

  • you are applying to start a new graduate course, noting that eligibility for scholarship schemes does not usually extend to PGDip and PGCert courses; 
  • you submit your course application by the relevant December or January admissions deadline;
  • you are subsequently offered a place after consideration of applications received by the deadline;
  • your application is not placed on a waiting list or held back after the December or January admissions deadline to be re-evaluated against applications received by the March admissions deadline; and
  • you meet the eligibility criteria.

It is important to note that during the selection process:

  • the eligibility criteria will be applied automatically, using the details you provide in the relevant sections of the graduate application form (for example, your country of ordinary residence and your previous education institutions), to determine whether you are eligible;
  • selection is based on academic merit, unless specified otherwise; 
  • some of the scholarships are only tenable at specific colleges. Unless specified otherwise, you do not need to select that college as your preference on the graduate application form. All eligible applicants will be considered, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference. However, successful applicants will be transferred to the relevant college in order to take up the scholarship; and
  • applicants who hold deferred offers to start in 2024-25 are not eligible to be considered for these scholarships.
