All of these Graduate Scholarships may be held in conjunction with an award from another body other than another Oxford College and carry entitlement to limited High Table dining rights.

All of these scholarships, apart from the Light Senior Scholarships, are open to new graduate students commencing graduate study at Oxford in October 2019 and to current graduate students who will have completed no more than two years of graduate research degree study at Oxford in October 2019.
 
Before awarding any Scholarship, the College must be satisfied that sufficient funding is available to cover University and College fees.
 
Applications for all scholarships with closing date of Friday 8 March 2019 should be sent by email to college.office@stcatz.ox.ac.uk, in a single PDF file if possible, and should be single-spaced and in at least a 12 point font.

  • A completed Graduate Scholarship Application Cover Form including the names and contact details of two referees
  • A personal statement (one page)
  • A research outline accessible to non-specialists (up to 1,200 words). For taught courses applicants may provide a statement of their academic interests and motivation for undertaking their course in place of a research outline.
  • A full curriculum vitae (two pages) 

Candidates should ask two people acquainted with their recent academic work to send references to the Academic Office at St. Catherine's College to arrive by the closing date of Friday 8 March 2019. Referees should submit references by email if possible (email: college.office@stcatz.ox.ac.uk).
