Applications for grants from this fund are invited from men and women born in the Republic of Ireland whose parents are citizens of the Republic of Ireland, and who are in need of financial assistance. Funds may be awarded to both graduate and undergraduate students reading for a degree, or, in some circumstances, for a diploma, at the University of Oxford.

Financial assistance is only available to students who are already at the University or students who have received a firm offer of both a faculty and a college place for a one-year taught Master's course. With exception for such courses, awards are not normally made to students in their first year of study. The Bequest does not provide full scholarships for study at the University, but, in general, is used to support students in need of smaller sums for maintenance and for specific projects. Amounts do not usually exceed £2000 per annum.

Further particulars and an application form may be obtained from the Secretary, Prendergast Bequest, International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (e-mail: The closing date for applications is 31 August. It is anticipated that applicants will be notified of the outcome in mid- to late September.
