Clarendon Scholarship - Scholarship of Oxford University for Bangladeshi Students
The Clarendon Fund is a major graduate scholarship scheme at the University of Oxford, offering over 100 new scholarships every year.
In 2012-13, there are over 300 Clarendon scholars at Oxford from more than 50 different nations. Awards are made based on academic excellence and potential across all subject areas, enabling the most distinguished scholars to study at Oxford University, one of the world's top five universities and the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
The Clarendon Fund was launched in 2001, and since that time the scholarship has enabled over 1,000 international scholars, who represent the elite academic candidates of their generation, to undertake graduate studies at Oxford.
The University has one goal in mind when selecting Clarendon scholars: to elect the best students worldwide, as decided by experts in each student's field. Furthermore, the process of selection means that the Clarendon scholarly community contains equal number of students from each of the University's four academic divisions, and this diversity is an immense strength for inter-disciplinary interaction amongst the scholars.
The Clarendon Fund has grown significantly since its inception in 2001: to date, the fund has received over £37m in support from its sponsor, Oxford University Press (OUP). This generous funding allows scholars-elect to study at Oxford regardless of financial capability, helping to remove any barriers that may stand in the way of the best graduate applicants. In return, their attendance enables Oxford University to maintain its position as a leading academic institution, providing long-term value to the University which has been described as 'immeasurable' by former Vice-Chancellor Dr. John Hood.
In 2011, the year of the Scholarships' 10th anniversary, it was decided that the remit of the Clarendon Fund would be expanded to include all nationalities. From 1 September 2011, all graduate applicants to degree-bearing courses are eligible for this prestigious scholarship funding which was, up until this point, only open to candidates with overseas fee status.
All Clarendon Scholarships cover tuition and college fees in full and a generous grant for living expenses.
Scholars on a full-time course receive a tax-free annual grant that is normally sufficient to cover the living expenses of a single student living in Oxford. The grant for living expenses in 2011-12 is GBP£13,590.
Scholars on a part-time course receive a pro-rata amount of the full-time grant for living expenses. Part-time Master's scholars are offered 1/3 of the full-time grant per year for two years. Part-time DPhil scholars are offered 1/6 of the full-time grant per year for six years.
Selection criteria vary slightly depending on the subject area and whether applicants apply for a taught or research degree, but include:
An excellent academic record is essential: A high first class honours degree or its equivalent (a GPA score of at least 3.7 if the mark is out of 4, noting that most successful candidates achieve a score higher than 3.7) or an outstanding academic record at Master's level is necessary (noting that an outstanding Master's degree can compensate for a moderate first degree performance). Other indicators of high academic achievement may include individual marks on student transcripts; evidence of previous university prizes or awards; information on your overall position within your cohort; and publications (if applicable).
Aptitude for the proposed course of study: This may be assessed by reviewing academic references, the research proposal, demonstrated evidence of aptitude for research, and the likelihood the scholar will contribute significantly to their field of study.
Student motivation: This is assessed through evidence of the applicant's commitment to their proposed course, evaluated by the personal statement and referees' reports.
By applying for graduate study at Oxford University, you will automatically be considered for a Clarendon Scholarship. You do not need to submit any additional documents specifically for the Clarendon Scholarships and there is no separate scholarship application form. The closing date for Graduate Admissions for 2013/2014 is 18 January 2013 (or 4 January for Medical Sciences, Philosophy, Politics and International Relations).
The information that you provide with your application form for graduate study at Oxford will be used to assess your funding application. Once the application deadline has passed, you are not able to provide any additional supporting materials (unless the department you are applying to has specifically requested this in support of your application for admission to Oxford).
