Bursaries and scholarships
The Centre has a number of bursaries and book grants to offer our students.
Normally, bursaries are advertised in eighth week of Hilary term, and awarded at the end of Trinity term. They are all open to all current students of the OCHS for fees, maintenance, or research costs.
Students should apply by sending a CV and letter of application to the OCHS.
