Oxford University Graduate Scholarships for Ukraine

The Oxford University Graduate Scholarships for Ukraine Programme for 2023-24 is proudly supported by the XTX Markets Academic Sanctuaries Fund.

This scholarship programme will offer financial support to applicants who have been displaced by the war in Ukraine. The scholarships are open to nationals of Ukraine who have been displaced by the war in Ukraine, and will provide support for 18 full-time taught master’s students beginning courses at Oxford in the 2023-24 academic year.

The Ukraine graduate scholars will join eligible taught master’s courses in Oxford’s Divisions of Mathematical Physical and Life Sciences, the Medical Sciences, Continuing Education and Social Sciences (for the Master of Public Policy), and they will receive funding to cover their course fees as well as a grant for living costs.

This scholarship programme is designed to assist Ukraine in ‘building back better’, the aim being that the scholars should be able to return and contribute to the reconstruction of Ukraine with the knowledge and networks gained from their one-year course.

The scholarships are open to candidates who meet the eligibility criteria - see the Eligibility section of this page for further details. Eligible courses are available in a broad range of academic subjects. 

Each scholarship will cover course fees in full in addition to a £10,000 grant towards living expenses. Free accommodation and meals, when the college kitchens are open, will be provided to scholars by the participating colleges.


Up to 18 scholarships are available for applicants to eligible full-time taught master’s courses, who are:

  • nationals of Ukraine, and;
  • who have been displaced by the war in Ukraine.

Others from neighbouring countries who can meet the evidence requirements for having been displaced by the war in Ukraine may also be considered for the scholarships.
