Yalda Hakim Graduate Scholarship for Female Afghan Scholars

Oriel has partnered with the Yalda Hakim Foundation to offer a fully-funded scholarship, awarded on the basis of academic merit and potential, for a woman from Afghanistan to complete a one-year Master’s course in any subject at the University of Oxford.

It is intended that the scholarship, for the 2022-23 academic year, will benefit a student from an economically and socially disadvantaged background.

With the dangers faced by women in education in Afghanistan, not least the continued threat of violence and attacks on educational facilities in the country, this scholarship aims to offer one Afghan woman the opportunity for an educational experience free from the threat of violence, at one of the best universities in the world, where you can expand your knowledge and build networks that will help transform you into a leader for the future.

Status: Open for applications for Michaelmas Term 2023 entry.
