The College has a range of support and advice to help you manage your finances during your studies at Oxford. 

Academic Support Grants

Grants are awarded to students on the basis of academic merit. Find out more on our Financial Support page.

Hardship fund

Queen’s has a tradition of supporting its members generously. We budget around £90,000 a year for student support; grants and loans are awarded by a student finance committee which meets twice per term to consider applications. The committee is attended by undergraduate and postgraduate welfare representatives. If you find yourself in severe financial hardship you can apply to this committee. Find out more on our Financial Support page.


There are a number of graduate scholarships available at The Queen’s College. Find out more on our Graduate Scholarships page.

Student funding and course fees

Information about student funding and course fees for postgraduate courses can be found on the University’s Fees & Funding pages.


Undergraduate students who continue to postgraduate study at The Queen’s College may be eligible to receive a Taberdarship – a scholarship to the value of approximately £3,500. In order to be eligible, students must attain a First Class degree in their Finals examinations. Taberdarships are tenable for one year in the first instance and may be renewed annually for a further three years.

Benefactors’ Prizes

Up to 12 such Prizes (with a value of £100 each) are awarded annually to undergraduate and graduate Junior Members in recognition of non-academic contributions to the life of the College, subject to at least satisfactory academic performance. Nominations may be made by any member of the College no later than Friday of 4th week of Trinity Term, and the nomination process allows for self-nomination.

Essay Prize in Clinical Medicine

Awarded annually to Clinical Medical students in their penultimate year. 

650th Anniversary Trust Fund awards

To celebrate the College’s 650th Anniversary, Old Members of the College set up a Trust Fund to disburse awards to current members in the region of £150 – £500 for a variety of cultural and sporting activities. Applications are open at the start of the calendar year

Pippa Koller Prize

The Pippa Koller Prize provides funds for sporting endeavours of Queen’s students who identify as women. Preference is given to those who have taken up a sport as a novice since commencing their studies at Oxford. Those eligible will be automatically considered. The prize is offered in memory of Old Member Pippa Koller (Engineering, Economics & Management, 1992) who died in 2017.
