The Oxford Australia Scholarship fund selects up to eight young Australians each year to study at Oxford University. Applications are welcome from Australian graduates who wish to further their studies or research with a post graduate degree at Oxford University.

The Oxford Australia Scholarship Fund was established in 1993 by donations from Australian Oxford alumni and 2020 will be the 23rd year of its operation, having funded over 90 awards since then. Scholarship selection is on merit, requiring a minimum of a First Class Honours degree from an Australian university and applications are open to all disciplines. Scholarships are intended to support Australian nationals, ordinarily resident in Australia, to undertake their first overseas degree
