Apply for the Oxford-Patrick Duncan Graduate Scholarships to study at Oxford University

Brief Description

The Oxford-Patrick Duncan Graduate scholarship is available for applicants who are ordinarily resident in one of the member states of the Southern African Development Community (a list of member states is available on the South African Development Community website), and who are applying to the full-time MSc African Studies. Preference will be given to applicants with an interest in sustainable development in Africa, including social and economic dimensions, but especially environmental issues.

The scholarship is jointly funded by the University, St Antony’s College and the family of Patrick Duncan (1918-67), who was a South African political activist with a particular interest in sustainable development. 

The scholarship covers course fees and a grant for living costs. Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.

The scholarship is only tenable at St Antony’s College. All eligible applicants will be considered for this scholarship, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference on the graduate application form. However, successful applicants will be transferred to St Antony’s College in order to take up the scholarship.

Selection is expected to take place by mid-March 2020.
