The scholars will be entitled to accommodation (for which they will be charged) until they have completed their university residence requirements. This accommodation will be in the Graduate Centre at Holywell Manor.

There will also be Jowett Exhibitions, up to the value of £1,000 each for candidates who are runners-up for the Jowett Senior Scholarships. These will be restricted to members of Balliol College. The exhibitions are tenable for one year only.
