Apollo Bursary

The Apollo Bursary has been created through a generous donation from the Apollo University Lodge. The Apollo University Lodge, No. 357 is the Freemasons' Lodge for members of the University of Oxford and is part of the United Grand Lodge of England.

The Lodge was founded in 1818 and exists for past and present members of the University. In accordance with its charitable aims the Lodge has established a fund to assist undergraduates in need of financial assistance.


There are up to seven awards valued at £1,100 and these are awarded for one year only. Eligible students will be notified with further information in Michaelmas Term 2023. Please contact the Bursaries team for further details.
