Partnership awards

Clarendon has many valued partners throughout Oxford and beyond who, through their generous support, enable us to support as many as 60 additional scholars each year.

Clarendon partners include Oxford colleges, academic departments, University trust funds, and external organisations, whose generous contributions help fund scholarships by allowing us to spread the cost between multiple sources. In this way we are able to support even more students. 

The majority of Clarendon scholars will receive funding packages which comprise core Clarendon funding alongside awards offered by our partners. Regardless of where the funding comes from, all of our funding packages conform to the normal Clarendon standard on value and duration. Awards comprising partnership funding are also co-named, to recognise the partner's contribution.

If you are selected for Clarendon you will be considered for every partnership award for which you are eligible. You do not need to do anything in order to be considered for the full range of these awards. If your funding package includes a partnership award from an Oxford college we will, where necessary, arrange your transfer to the college in question so that you can take up the award.

Joint scholarships

In recent years we have also been proud to offer joint scholarships in the form of the Fulbright-Oxford Clarendon Scholarship (offered in partnership with the Fulbright Commission) which may offer up to two joint DPhil scholarships to US citizens. We have also been working in partnership with the Skye Foundation which awards graduate scholarships to South African candidates of exceptional academic merit.
