Mathematics is central to science and society, embedded in every discipline and every industry. Oxford Mathematics sits at the heart of mathematics across the globe. We want Oxford to be the destination of choice for the students, researchers and teachers of tomorrow, but in order to achieve this, we need the support of the many people who have experienced and benefited from mathematics in Oxford over the years.

We are facing fierce competition from other universities for the best graduate students. With traditional sources of funding becoming increasingly stretched, the need for the Mathematical Institute to provide scholarships that will attract, support and retain these bright minds grows ever more critical. We simply cannot afford to lose them.

The Oxford Mathematical Institute Fund (OMIF) was established in 2014 for the purposes of supporting the Mathematical Institute. Gifts to the fund are directed towards the institute’s area of greatest need, which is currently graduate student support.

Your donation to OMIF will enable Oxford Mathematics to remain at the forefront of international research, by helping to ensure that the best mathematicians can apply to and accept their place at Oxford without financial concern. Just as importantly, you will be contributing to the development of mathematics itself, the cornerstone of so much of the modern world.

Please note that all donations will be held as expendable endowment in OMIF. If you would like to make a donation towards a more specific purpose, such as widening access and diversity, please contact Ben Armstrong.
