Wolfson Studentships

The deadline for new students to apply for a Wolfson Studentship has been extended to 16 April 2019. Please note that current Wolfson students who will be starting a new course at Wolfson next academic year (e.g. undergraduates about to start a Masters or Masters transitioning to PhD) are eligible to apply for this deadline, and indeed some funding sources are dedicated to supporting such students.

Visit the funding sections of the undergraduate or postgraduate pages in order to apply. Remember the Student Finance Officer can provide guidance on your application.

Hardship Funds

Wolfson is very fortunate to have the services of Liz Bland, our Student Finance Officer. Liz is in her office in Bredon House Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and can be contacted by email. If you are experiencing financial hardship, or have questions about funding availability, she will be able to help.

Travel & Research and Vacation Project Grants

Sports Awards

The College provides Sports Awards of up to £200 towards costs such as subscription fees, equipment, mandatory kit and travel costs to competitions. Funds are limited, and so priority will be given to applicants who can demonstrate financial need.
