Oxford Summer School Scholarships

Our mission is to give students the edge to help them succeed, find their purpose and make a difference in the world. We are keen to support as many students as possible, no matter their financial circumstances, as part of our commitment to provide 10,000 hours of support for our scholars over the next three years.

Please note, we don’t accept direct applications for scholarships. Our scholarship programme is offered through our sister site, OxBright, and our partner charities.

Our Scholarship Programme

We offer scholarship places through our sister site, OxBright, for students who have been nominated by a staff member at one of our Partner Charities, and who would otherwise be unable to attend.

Scholars attend our OxBright Scholars programme for free. OxBright Scholars is an ongoing programme of support, which gives Scholars access to an expert subject Mentor, live weekly Tutorials, ongoing subject-specific mentoring and support, and cutting-edge content. It’s a long-term programme, designed specifically for the needs of students from disadvantaged backgrounds in collaboration with our Partner Charities.


Applying for a summer school scholarship

It’s not possible to apply directly to the Oxford Scholastica Academy for a scholarship. In order to make sure that our scholarship programme is targeted to students from the most disadvantaged backgrounds, students need to be nominated by a staff member at our Partner Charities.

If you’re not an OxBright Scholar, you can still benefit from our free resources and support. Check out the latest subject-specific content on our Blog, learn more about our Oxford Summer School, or explore our free Career Test and University Preparation Tool (hosted on our sister site).
