The Raffy Manoukian Scholarships
These awards, generously funded by Mr Raffy Manoukian, are offered to Armenian nationals or students of Armenian descent who would otherwise be unable to study at Oxford.
An unlimited number of scholarships will be awarded for graduate and undergraduate degrees.
Am I eligible?
Candidates should be Armenian nationals or of Armenian descent (and not ordinarily resident in a state within the European Economic Area).
The Raffy Manoukian Scholarship is designed to support students who are accepted on a full time degree course at the University of Oxford but prevented from taking up their studies for reasons of financial difficulty. You will be contacted by the Raffy Manoukian office directly to provide with financial information if you are short-listed.
Applicants must intend to return to their home country at the end of their studies.
Please ensure you meet the requirements for entry to your course, including English language requirements. See the Undergraduate Course Guide for more information.
Deferred students are not eligible.
What does it cover?
100% of university and college fees, and a grant for living costs of £9,225 (2012-13 rate) for undergraduate students.
Awards are made for the full duration of a student’s fee liability for the agreed course. If your scholarship is offered for a course lasting more than one year, the continuation of your scholarship each year is subject to an annual renewal process based on satisfactory academic progress.
How do I apply?
You must apply to the University of Oxford as described on the Undergraduate Admissions webpage through the UCAS system. Please note that the closing date for all UCAS applications is 15 October 2012 and certain courses may require students to register for tests before this.
Once you have been offered a place by your college you may apply for the Raffy Manoukian Scholarship. This will involve completing the undergraduate scholarship application form (UND_1314) and submitting it in February 2013, exact date to be confirmed.
How will I know if I have been successful?
Successful candidates will be notified by email in May 2013. This webpage will be updated to show when all decisions have been made. If you have not heard from us by the time this notice is posted, then your application to this scheme has been unsuccessful. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants individually or provide feedback on applications.
