Financial support is available to Oxford undergraduates thanks to the regional Oxonian alumni group network.
Several UK alumni groups are making grants available to students (who must be from the area or have a strong and provable connection to the region) for projects taking place over the summer break which are connected to their studies.
Previous recipients have been able to volunteer with Medical Volunteers International on Lesvos, Greece, undertake internships in London, and work on engineering projects in Uganda. We are very grateful to the groups and their members for supporting students in this way.
Please note that the Alumni Office does not manage the application process; you need to contact the groups directly with any questions and to receive the application forms. The groups all have various methods of application, and different deadlines, so please make sure you read the guidelines carefully before applying.
Further details can be found below.
The groups are:
The Cornwall group, which is offering different types of bursaries of £250-500 to assist undergraduates with strong Cornish connections. Please send a 1 page CV with personal statement and Cornwall connections and a 1 page outline of internship or project.
