The University of Oxford invites applications for its fully-funded undergraduate Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships), which open to students from low income countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries. The scholarships are only open to new students who will be starting an undergraduate course in the University in October 2014.
Worth of Scholarships: University fees and college fees, a grant for living expenses and one return air fare per year

Eligible Courses: All course except medicine

College Choice: Not all colleges are able to offer Reach Oxford Scholarships every year. If you are accepted by a college that is not participating in the scheme, this will not prevent you from applying for and being awarded a scholarship. If your application is successful, arrangements will be made to transfer you between colleges.
Other Criteria: This scheme is only suitable for candidates of the highest academic ability who have outstanding examination results. However, financial need and social commitment are also major criteria for selection. Applicants should be intending to return to their country of ordinary residence following their studies.
Deadline: Scholarship application deadline is February, 21 2014.
