Alborada Scholarship Application Form

Applications for 2020-21 entrants will re-open again on 23 January 2020.

Alborada Scholarships provide financial support to Wolfson College students who will be or already are registered for an undergraduate or doctoral degree in Veterinary Science, Medicine, or Medical Research. Awards are made on the basis of academic merit and demonstrated financial need.  They are intended primarily to assist students who might not otherwise be able to take up or continue with their studies in Veterinary Sciences or Medicine. Awards vary in size, with most in the range between £5,000 and £10,000; they are usually renewable for the duration of the student's course, subject to satisfactory academic progress and continuing financial need. Priority is given to undergraduate and PhD students in Veterinary Science, then to undergraduates in Medicine and PhD students engaged in Medical Research.
