The Dulverton Trust aims to support projects and people who can make a difference in the world, with a particular focus on social issues, the natural world and heritage. The Dulverton graduate scholarships at Oxford form part of that vision, enabling outstanding scholars to undertake world-leading education at Oxford University, with the intention of using the experience and knowledge they gain to provide leadership in their home region after their studies.
