At Regent’s Park College, we want to help the best and brightest students to be able to study at the University of Oxford, irrespective of their financial circumstances.
We know that higher education is expensive, especially for postgraduate students whose access to statutory funding is limited, but we are pleased to be able to offer a range of funding opportunities in addition to those available through the University. The College is always looking for ways to improve the financial support we can offer to students and this page is updated as new funding becomes available, so we encourage prospective and current students to check back occasionally. All of the grants and scholarships we offer have been made possible by the generosity and vision of trusts and individuals, and the Development Office would love to hear from anyone with an interest in supporting postgraduate study at the University of Oxford and Regent’s Park College, in particular.
Prospective applicants with queries about any of the funding opportunities listed on this page are welcome to write to our Academic Administrator (email@example.com). Information about annual fee liabilities and other sources of funding available at Oxford, can be found on the University’s website.

The Pamela Sue Anderson Studentship for the Encouragement of the Place of Women in Philosophy
Regent’s Park College is offering a postgraduate studentship worth up to £4000 for a student who is currently engaged in, or has been accepted for, postgraduate study at the University of Oxford.
Reflecting the distinguished contribution to scholarship of the late Professor Anderson (1955-2017), preference will be given to applicants in the fields of feminist philosophy or feminist philosophy of religion, or, failing that and as an absolute requirement, to a person working on philosophy of a kind that encourages the place of women in philosophy.
The studentship will be used to fund the tuition of one student and will be tenable for as long as the selection committee deems appropriate, subject to the condition that it shall not be tenable beyond the duration of the student’s postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford. The holder of the scholarship is required to be, or to become, a member of Regent’s Park College, Oxford.
