Fully-funded Swire/University of Oxford Scholarships for Kenyans 2021

St Antony’s College, University of Oxford, invites Kenyans to apply for its 2021/2022 Scholarships for a master’s degree at Oxford.

The Oxford and Kenya Society of Kenya established a formal framework to channel the social and charitable activities of the Society and under the guidance of Edward Brandis Denham, the idea of a Scholarship Scheme was conceived. The Society has come a long way since, while the Scholarship Scheme remains our primary objective, its purpose has transitioned from providing partial undergraduate assistance to two fully funded post-graduate scholarships, one at either university.

The Swire Charitable Trust has a longstanding relationship with St Antony’s College and has over many years funded numerous scholarships for both students and Academic Visitors, as well as until 2014 funding the Swire Fellow Professor Rosemary Foot, now an Emeritus Professor at St Antony’s College.

Worth of Award

  •  The total value of the scholarship is £30,000 which for most courses will cover 100% of university and college fees and an annual grant for living costs.
