Reach Oxford Undergraduate Scholarships – Developing Countries 2012

A number of Oxford colleges offer Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships) to students from developing countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because standard educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.
Scholarship winners will study at Oxford University, UK under any undergraduate course of study, except Medicine due to the course length and expense.

The Oxford scholarship scheme is only suitable for candidates of the highest academic ability who have outstanding examination results. However, financial need and social commitment are also major criteria for selection.
