Legitimacy / selection criteria:
Clarendon Scholarships are awarded based on excellent academic qualifications and the ability to graduate students from around the world. The scholarships are available in all subject areas and are open to candidates applying for a new master’s or doctoral course with an admission deadline in January.
If you apply for a full-time or part-time Masters or DPhil course at Oxford by the end of January for your course, you will automatically be considered for the Clarendon scholarship. You do not need to submit any additional documents specifically to the Clarendon Scholarship; there is no separate form for the scholarship application. However, you must submit your application before the January deadline (January 8 or 22, 2021) for your course if you wish to be considered academically.
