Graduate Awards

Graduate Awards

Each term, the college invites graduate students to apply for funding to support their studies.

All graduate students at St Peter's are eligible to apply for Graduate Awards. There is, however, a limit to the amount that any student can apply for while on their course, as shown in the table below:

Duration of course Total amount available from all funds listed below Maximum available in any one year
3 years or more £600 £400
2 years £300 £150
1 year£ 150 £150

For example, if a student is on a one-year MSc or MSt they are eligible for £150 in the academic year. If a student is studying for a DPhil, they are eligible for £600 throughout their course, with a maximum of £400 in any given year.

Applicants are expected to approach at least one other source of funds (these could include Faculty and Department funds, or external sources).

Graduate students are invited to apply for graduate awards each term. Although there are a number of different funds available (see below), there is one application form and students do not need to apply to a particular fund.

General enquiries can be sent to the Academic Office and application forms are available on the college intranet.
