Scholarships and Prizes 2005: Hardship


Applications for grants from this fund are invited from applicants 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. Please note that financial assistance is only available to students who are already at the University of Oxford 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 £2,500 per annum.

Further details and an application form are available the Student Funding and International Office, Web site: or from the Secretary to the Board of Management for the Prendergast Bequest, Student Funding and International Office, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (telephone: (2)70105, e-mail: The next closing date for applications is 31 August 2006. It is anticipated that applicants will be notified of the outcome in mid- to late September.
