St John's offers a number of scholarships which are awarded to students embarking on a new graduate course at the University.
  • For the College Graduate Scholarships and Graduate Partnership Scholarships listed below there is no separate application process; however, applicants do need to apply to Oxford University by the relevant January deadline date for their course (dates as set by Oxford University).
  • All awards are tenable at St John’s College, however it is not necessary to nominate St John’s as your college choice when applying; if you do name another college of preference you will still automatically be considered for our scholarships.
  • Where applicable, preference may be given to students whose research is in an area of interest to a Fellow of the College.
