More Information

Felix scholarships are offered at three universities - the University of Oxford, the University of Reading and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), part of the University of London.  The Scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic merit and financial need.

The first six scholarships were awarded for the year 1991/1992.  The number of scholarships available has now risen to approximately 20 per academic year.  A total of 389 scholarships have been awarded since the scheme began, of which 36 have been to students from countries other than India.

Since 2001, Felix scholarships have been awarded to gifted underprivileged students from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Cameroon, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Belarus, Peru, Czech Republic, Kenya, Ghana, Turkey, South Africa, Egypt, Nepal, Hungary and Lebanon.

Candidates should note that an application can be made to only one institution.
Candidates for the Felix Scholarships at Oxford should not complete the application form. Instead they should check the Felix Scholarship box in the Scholarships section of the University's Application Form for Graduate Study when applying for admission to their course. Candidates elected for interview must also complete a short questionnaire. This will be sent to them when they are short listed for interview.

Please note that:

  1. The fee rates are annual rates for full-time study unless specified. You should expect and budget for fees increasing on an annual basis;

  3. The search results may include courses that are not open for admission. Up-to-date information on courses that are open for admission can be found via our individual course pages; and
