Funding your studies

Oxford-Reuben Graduate Scholarships

An exceptional opportunity to enable you to study your passion, live your dream, and transform the future.
Oxford-Reuben Graduate Scholarships

We are committed to building a strong portfolio of funding opportunities to support Reuben College students in their graduate studies. This includes full scholarships; and for on-course student, bursaries and grants to cover fieldwork, conference participation or other costs incurred on your course.

Reuben College and the University of Oxford will offer a number Oxford-Reuben Graduate scholarships for students starting in October 2022.   The scholarships cover full course fees and maintenance for the duration of the course for selected students.  

Students must apply in the University November and January gathered fields, and for a course for which Reuben College admits graduate students. Scholarships will cover full fees and maintenance (normally at the level of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) minimum doctoral stipend).

All eligible candidates will automatically be considered for these scholarships, with no need to provide further information to either the College or University, and regardless of which college (if any) is stated as a preference on the graduate application form. However, successful candidates will be transferred to Reuben College in order to take up the scholarship.

They are only tenable at Reuben College, and are available for the courses accepted by the College.  

The College is currently reviewing its scholarship offering for 2022/23.  Reuben College is committed to offer 50% of its scholarships to students from under-represented groups and will  be supporting the Black Academic Futures scholarships.  Once finalised, further details of the other scholarships will be provided on this page.  


In 2021/22, Oxford-Reuben Graduate scholarships were offered to:

  • students ordinarily resident in an African country 
  • students ordinarily resident in Israel 

  • student researching in Ethics & Values with an interdisciplinary component engaging at least one other of Reuben College's themes (Cellular Life; Environmental Change; Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning)

  • student from under-represented group

The Oxford-Reuben Graduate scholarships also partnered with the Clarendon scholarships and five Oxford-based Doctoral Training Centres (listed below), to contribute to 8 further scholarships.
