The Amos Griffiths Bursary has been created through a generous donation from the Freemasons’ Provincial Grand Lodge of Oxfordshire in memory of Dr Amos Griffiths who served as their Assistant Provincial Grand Master.
The Provincial Grand Lodge is part of the United Grand Lodge of England and in accordance with its charitable aims has established a fund to assist undergraduates in need of financial assistance. Dr Amos Griffiths was also a well respected Oxford Consultant Physician and Clinical Lecturer at the University of Oxford.
There are four awards valued at £1,000 and these are awarded for one year only.
Students must fulfil all the criteria below in order to be considered:
- students must be studying for their first undergraduate degree, which should be either a Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences subject or Medical Sciences subject
- students must be entering their second year of study in 2016/17
- students must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the European Union
- students must be in receipt of the Oxford Bursary in 2016/17 or have a household income below £42,621
- awards will be made to students who have demonstrated academic excellence in their first year of study. If your course does not require you to sit exams during your first year, you must provide other examples of how you have achieved academic excellence
- preference will be given to students who do not already hold a bursary or scholarship that is centrally administered by the University. This does not include the Oxford Bursary.
Applications for 2016/17 will be open from mid-November.
