GROUP RESOURCES
BURSARIES

The Alumni Network Supporting Oxford Students

 

young woman gb32afb37f

Financial support is available to Oxford students thanks to the regional Oxonian alumni group network.

We have three UK alumni groups and one European alumni group making grants available to students (who must be from the local area/country or have a strong and provable connection to the region) for projects taking place over the summer break 2024. The projects must show a proven link to academic studies.

Previous recipients of alumni bursaries have been able to research tropical ecology in Borneo, run palliative care clinics in Malta, deliver presentations at the Metabolic Engineering conference in Singapore, work with Medical Volunteers International in Greece, undertake internships in London, and work on engineering projects in Uganda. We are very grateful to the groups and their members for supporting students in this way.

Please note that the Alumni Office does not manage the application process; you need to contact the groups directly with any questions and to receive the application forms. The groups all have various methods of application, and different deadlines, so please make sure that you read the guidelines carefully before applying.

The groups offering bursary support for 2024 are:

 

The Oxford University Society of Cornwall, is offering different types of bursaries of £350-600 to assist undergraduates with strong Cornish connections. Please send a one page CV with a personal statement and Cornwall connections, and a one page outline of the internship or project. Please note, the projects must be undertaken before September 2024. Normally only one award will be given to each student during their academic studies. The scheme is available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The deadline for applications is 1 April 2024.

Find out more or please contact Professor Fenella Wojnarowska

 

The Oxford University Society of East Kent, is planning to make several grants. The awards will be based on the relevance of the project to the degree courses and the likelihood that the amount will be sufficient, when added to other resources in hand, to achieve the stated goals. These grants will not be limited to activities that entail travel abroad nor will they be greater than £750 per student. The scheme is available to first and second year undergraduates, and third year undergraduates who are on on a four-year course. Applications should be made between 1 May - 28 June 2024.
