Applications are being invited for the Oxford-Indira Gandhi Graduate Scholarships. Scholarships are awarded to applicants who have demonstrated excellent academic ability, who will contribute to the Oxford University’s groundbreaking research.

The university contributes 40% of the funds for these scholarships, together with 60% from donations provided by numerous supporters of the university and its colleges.

Somerville College and the University of Oxford have established the Oxford-Indira Gandhi Graduate Scholarships with support of the Indian government. The scholarships are available to candidates ordinarily residents in India or graduates of universities in India, who demonstrate exceptional academic merit and who have been accepted to study at the University of Oxford in areas broadly related to sustainable development.

The Oxford-Indira Gandhi Graduate Scholars will be expected to return to India at the end of their studies to teach others in India and to play a leading role in tackling sustainable development problems. The scholarship will cover 100% of university and college fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £13,863). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course. Candidates should be applying to start a new graduate course at Oxford and must be residents in India or have previously studied at an Indian higher education institution. The application deadline is January 9, 2015 or January 23, 2015, depending on your course.
