Exeter College to offer Graduate Scholarship for Ukraine refugee
We are delighted to announce that Exeter College is offering a graduate scholarship for a Ukraine refugee next academic year. The scholarship received generous support from students, Fellows, staff and alumni and it is with great gratitude, and pride, that we can confirm that it is now fully funded. Thank you to everyone who made a gift or showed their support in other ways, including the many students and staff who raised money by running the Oxford Town and Gown 10 km sponsored run in May.
Exeter College is pleased to be able to partner with the University on the Graduate Scholarship Scheme for Ukraine Refugees. The Scheme will allow up to 20 scholarships to be awarded across the University to people who are ordinarily resident in Ukraine, for admission onto a one-year full-time postgraduate taught Master’s course in a wide range of subjects.
The scholarships will help people whose lives have been affected by war to continue with their studies by covering course fees in full and providing a £7,500 stipend for additional living expenses. Exeter College will also provide its Ukraine Refugee Scholar with free accommodation and meals in College.
Recruitment of prospective scholars is taking place now through a campaign led by the University. The campaign includes extensive promotion across Ukrainian universities and their social media channels, as well as communication with relevant networks such as the Oxford University Ukrainian Society. Scholars may also come through the family reunification route, the UK Government’s Homes for Ukraine scheme, or other routes. We will find out whether a qualified candidate, accepted for their course by the relevant University department, has nominated Exeter College for their studies later in the summer.
Thank you, once again, to everyone who showed their support for the scholarship.
