Crankstart Scholarships (formerly Moritz-Heyman)

The University has generous scholarships available to help low-income students take up the opportunity to study here. From 2020, all UK resident students commencing their first undergraduate degree with a household income of £27,500 or less will be invited to become Crankstart (formerly known as Moritz-Heyman) scholars. This not only provides enhanced funding but other opportunities such as volunteering and summer internships.

I come from a single parent family, and my mum has a chronic illness, as a result of which I’ve been her carer on and off for around 5 years. Money stress was the last thing I needed as I was preparing to come to Oxford …, so getting this took a huge weight off my shoulders. Without a doubt, the Scholarship was one of the most valuable opportunities I’ve ever been given.
