The scholarship is open to Australian citizens who are ordinarily resident in Australia and who have not previously studied outside of Australia, unless you are a current Oxford-Australia scholar applying for a new course at Oxford.
The Oxford Australia Scholarship Fund was established in the 1990s with donations from Australians who studied at Oxford and, in particular, from Mr James Fairfax AC. Since then, the Fund has continued to grow, thanks to the generosity of its many supporters, including special fundraising initiatives from the alumni of Magdalen College, University College and Brasenose College, which have created awards linked to specific colleges.
