The Oxford Australia Scholarship Fund was established in the 1990's with donations from Australians who studied at Oxford and, in particular, from Mr James Fairfax AO. Since then, the Fund has continued to grow, thanks to the generosity of its many supporters, including special fund-raising initiatives from the Old Members of Magdalen College, University College and Brasenose College, which have created awards linked to specific colleges.
Am I eligible?
You should be applying to start a new full-time graduate course at Oxford. Please ensure that you meet the selection criteria for your course (see the Course Guide for more information).
Applicants must be Australian citizens who are ordinarily resident in Australia.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.
This scholarship is not open to candidates applying for Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma courses, part-time courses, non-matriculated courses or to students with deferred entry .
This Scholarship is also open to undergraduate applicants taking a second BA course. The details on this webpage relate to graduate applicants only. Undergraduates should refer to the Scholarship webpage for undergraduate applicants .
What does it cover?
The value of the scholarship is normally AUD$12,000 per annum towards living expenses.
Scholarships are often offered to candidates who are also awarded a Clarendon Fund Scholarship in order to create full scholarships which will cover all fees and living expenses.
Awards are made for the full duration of a student's fee liability for the agreed course. If your scholarship is offered for a course lasting more than one year, the continuation of your scholarship each year is subject to an annual renewal process based on satisfactory academic progress.
How do I apply?
Apply at the same time as you apply to Oxford by selecting Oxford Australia Scholarship Fund in the Funding section of the University's graduate application form.
In order to be considered for this scholarship, you must submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline for your course (10 January 2014 for Medical Sciences, Philosophy, Politics & International Relations and Computer Science; 24 January 2014 for all other subjects).
You must include a statement with the University's graduate application form describing your reasons for applying for your course of study and the Oxford Australia Scholarship Fund and an outline of your future career plans and intentions.
If you do not apply as detailed above by the deadline, you will not be considered for this scholarship, even if you have selected the Oxford Australia Scholarship on the graduate application form.
Additional points to note when applying for this scholarship:
If, following the assessment of the January deadline applications, your department places your application on a waiting list or decides to re-evaluate it against the applications received for the next deadline (14 March 2014), then you will no longer be eligible for this scholarship.
If you are accepted onto a different course from the one you originally applied for, you should contact us as soon as you are notified of the change in order to ensure that your application for a scholarship is maintained on the new course. However, please note that such a change of course may mean that you are no longer eligible for this scholarship.
How will I know if I have been successful?
Successful applicants have now been notified. If you have not heard from the Oxford-Australia scholarship panel, then your application to this scheme has been unsuccessful. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants individually or provide feedback on applications.
If you have any questions about this scholarship which are not answered above, please email us through the Ask a Question facility, selecting the Funding category.
