Undergraduate Grants, Awards & Scholarships

Our undergraduate students are encouraged to apply for funds and opportunities for which they are eligible.

Some of the opportunities we offer are subject dependent (see our individual course pages) or performance dependent; students who achieve a First in all or most of their First Public Examinations either receive a £200 scholars' prize or a £100 exhibition prize. In addition, scholars and exhibitioners will receive a gift of a Scholars Gown, a prestigious dinner to celebrate, and a plaque listing.

Student Experiences

The funding we received from Tutorials Plus and the Picot Prize helped finance a trip to Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, during September 2022. We both loved our time in Lisbon and it hugely enriched our learning. Our language skills improved, especially our confidence in speaking, and we really got to know the city well.

Through support from the Alan Jones fund, I am delighted to be able to say that I stayed in Rabat, the modern and quite lovely capital of Morocco for three weeks. There, I completed a one-on-one advanced Arabic course at the Center for Cross-Cultural Learning, a quaint yet stunning language insitute tucked away at the edge of Rabat’s labyrinthic medina. The fund meant that I could afford these one-on-one classes, something which has been invaluable for going into my final year of a French and Arabic degree.

Through support from the George Bredin Travel Fund, I attended a departmental field course in tropical forest ecology. I joined four professors and about twenty other second-year undergraduates to fly to Borneo in May of 2023. I never would have had the confidence to undertake my latest project without the practical skills and research independence the Borneo trip helped build.
