Current Oxford Students with scholarshipsWatch
I know the Oxford Bursary and Moritz-Heyman applications are automatic, I'm looking more for advice on how to get the other scholarships or other outside funding.
(I've looked online at the fees and funding page, and called a whole bunch of admissions and accounts people at Oxford already).
If you've done the search on here - http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...d-scholarships
Then maybe once you know which scholarships you are eligible for, come back and ask?
Yes, I've looked at the website and I'm only eligible for the automatic funding (the Oxford bursary or Moritz Heyman) i.e. the ones I can't apply for directly.
Basically, I'm not eligible for anything specific in terms of ethnicity or nationality or subject etc. But I am eligible for low income funding. My college doesn't have anything available for low income students specifically. So I'm looking at external funding bodies (basically grant-giving organisations).
Specifically I'm looking for advice on what to put in an application letter; how I can convince them I'm worth giving money to! And any other tips in terms of what to ask my references to focus on, or whether to go for academic references or character etc.
This might be more a question for PhD students? Or internationals? I know most UK undergrads can just get student finance, but I'm not eligible which is why I'm looking for external funding.
Hope that makes things a bit clearer?
Do you have an offer for undergrad or a PhD? Because Graduate scholarships work completely differently as far as I know.
It's an undergraduate degree.
