Dean’s Scholars Fund


The Dean’s Scholars Fund exists to provide financial support and opportunities to those students who have so much to offer our collective future.

Oxford Law is a meeting place for some of the most gifted graduates from across the world, who play a key role in advancing the Faculty of Law’s mission to nurture bold and innovative solutions to some of the most pressing legal problems facing societies around the world.

Yet for many offer-holders, a lack of funding remains a barrier to taking up their places at Oxford – only 50% of all graduate students at Oxford enjoy the security of scholarship funding, and with other traditional sources of funding stretched, financial support for future generations of law alumni has become more important than ever.

The Dean's Scholarship has made it possible for me to conduct research that will hopefully shed light on the experiences of some of the most marginalised members of society and to involve their voices in the rich and diverse academic dialogue coming out of the Law Faculty at Oxford. It has also made it possible for me to rejoin the Feminist Jurisprudence Discussion Group community which I established while studying on the BCL and which has become a lively space within the Faculty.

The Fund enables us to enrich our diverse, inclusive, multi-cultural and intellectually stimulating community, and it is only possible thanks to the terrific support that alumni and friends of Oxford Law have given.

With your help, we hope to be able to welcome more Dean’s Scholars in 2022/23 and to continue to do so for many years to come.

Thank you for your support.

I support the Dean’s Scholars Fund because I value my time at Oxford; for the combination of rigorous academic experience and friendships I made which have stood the test of time. I’m very glad to be part of a large alumni community which is helping to ensure that current and future students, especially those who may miss out simply due to a lack of funding, will have the same equally wonderful opportunities.

Help us establish the fund as a reliable source for the future with a single, monthly, or annual gift today.
