The inaugural award of the Oxford-Rees Scholarship will be awarded for 2023 entry. It will support care-experienced Social Sciences candidates.
For the purposes of selection, ‘care experienced’ means having been looked after by the state or your local authority, or as a looked-after child. This could include:
- living with foster carers under local authority care;
- living in a residential children's home;
- being 'looked after at home’ under a supervision order; or
- living with friends or relatives in kinship care – either through a formal arrangement (such as a Special Guardianship order) or an informal arrangement, without local authority support.
You do not have to meet the legal definition of being a care leaver to be considered for this scholarship.
Support is being provided by funding partners across the University and colleges. These scholarships are open to applicants to all academic subjects and will provide funding packages to assist with course fees and living costs.
