St Hugh’s Clarendon Scholarships

The College offers around six scholarships linked to the Clarendon Fund and supported by generous donations to St Hugh’s College. 

These awards are administered centrally and not by the College. If you have either named St Hugh’s as your college of preference on your University application form, or indicated that you wish your college choice to be overridden for funding purposes, you will be automatically considered for one of these awards. The St Hugh’s Clarendon awards normally offer full fees and maintenance costs for up to three years of DPhil study.
