Bursaries and Scholarships

Each year the OCHS hands out bursaries and scholarships on behalf of our generous donors. A list of all the bursaries and scholarships can be found below. Normally, bursaries are awarded at the end of Trinity term. They are all open to all current students of the OCHS for fees, maintenance, or research costs.

You should apply by sending a short letter of application to secretary@ochs.org.uk explaining what you are studying, the reasons for your application, how much you are applying for and include a budget to show us how you plan to use the bursary or scholarship. 

There are no specific conditions linked to any of them, so feel free to apply for any or all, but specifying which bursary(ies) or scholarship(s) you’re interested in. 

To be considered for one or more of the bursaries or scholarships you must be a registered student at the OCHS. Apply to become an OCHS student here.

The submission of applications is now open.

The submission deadline is Monday, May 30th, 2022 before 12.00 PM.
