St Anne’s awards a number of generous Graduate Scholarships, Graduate Development Scholarships and Travel and Conference Grants each academic year. College also offers a number of linked awards in collaboration with departments of the University of Oxford.

Awards offered

Current Postgraduate Students

Eligible graduate members of St Anne’s who are doctoral students will receive an email from the Tutor for Graduates in Hilary Term inviting applications for the following College scholarship:

A Graduate Development Scholarship which has a value of £7,023 for the 2023-24 academic year.


Postgraduate Applicants

There is no separate application process for St Anne's Scholarships for new postgraduate applicants. 

Applicants should apply through the University for their graduate course in the normal way. Your application will go forward for consideration for any joint departmental St Anne's Scholarship for which you are eligible.

Please note that some awards will not be available every year.

Centenary Scholarships and Bursaries

St Anne’s students who continue with us as full-time students registered for a postgraduate degree are automatically awarded either a Centenary Scholarship or a Centenary Bursary. Pre-Clinical Medics returning for the Clinical Medicine programme are also eligible for these awards. A Centenary Scholarship has a value of £1,000 and is awarded to those St Anne’s students who obtained either a First Class degree or a Distinction on a taught Masters programme. Otherwise, a Centenary Bursary (£500) is awarded.


Bursaries for Clinical Medicine and Graduate-Entry Medicine

Clinical Medics and Graduate-Entry Medicine students can apply for a grant of up to £200 to help with the purchase of any necessary equipment required for the course. Also available are Graduate Travel Grants, of up to £1,000 over the duration of the programme, towards the cost of an elective in an overseas country and/or attendance at a conference.

Graduate Research and Travel Grants at St Anne's

Graduate Research and Travel Grants provide support for graduates (excluding Clinical Medics and Graduate Entry Medical students) going to a conference, preference is given to those students presenting a paper or poster. They also fund research trips to libraries and research institutes overseas.

There are three deadlines in each academic year at noon on Friday of Week 5 of every term.  Look out for the email sent to all graduate students from the Academic Office at the start of each term. Within the email will be a link and you will be asked to complete an application online.

We aim to be as generous as we can but we advise you to seek additional/matching funds from your department or funding body. We usually offer up to £100 for travel within the UK, up to £250 for travel to Europe, and up to £500 for travel elsewhere.

Unsuccessful applications will automatically be passed to the MCR Academic Affairs Rep to be considered for an MCR funded travel/research grant.
