The Oriel Graduate Scholarship for Sub-Saharan African Scholars was launched in 2022 and is open to all Oriel graduate students who are citizens of any sub-Saharan African country and/or have permanent residence in a country in sub-Saharan Africa, all of whom will be automatically considered for the award upon receiving an offer to study at Oriel.
The prize exists to support students from sub-Saharan Africa who are interested in solving the biggest problems currently facing the African continent, be that public health, ensuring stable economic growth, mitigating the worst effects of the climate crisis, or something else.
Preference will be given to those taking a personal and academic interest in Africa’s future and flourishing, those whose research or area of study might be applicable to problems currently facing Africa, and those who have expressed intent to work in Africa at some point after their study in Oxford.
