Oxford Summer School Scholarships

We are keen that as many students as possible are able to attend Oxford Scholastica, no matter what 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. To become a Scholar, you need to be nominated by a teacher at one of our Partner Schools.

The Oxford Scholastica Academy Scholarship

We offer scholarship places for students who have been nominated by a teacher at one of our Partner Schools, and who would otherwise be unable to attend.

A scholarship entitles you to a place on our OxBright programme for free. OxBright is an ongoing programme of support – supported by an expert subject Mentor, you’ll experience weekly live Tutorials, giving you the chance to discuss topics you don’t cover at school, ask questions and gain insights into the skills leading universities value most. You’ll also join our thriving community of like-minded students where you can continue your learning throughout the week.
