Pembroke Black Academic Futures Scholarship in Mathematics

The Mathematical Institute is consistently ranked amongst the very best mathematics departments in the world, for both teaching and research. We are committed to attracting the world’s most talented students and working with them, to help them maximise their potential, regardless of race, gender, religion or background.

As part of the University of Oxford’s Black Academic Futures Scholarships the Mathematical Institute and Pembroke College are delighted to invite talented UK Black or Mixed-Black students to apply for one fully funded postgraduate scholarship in 2023-2024 on one of the courses below:

  • DPhil in Mathematics
  • Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics of Random Systems

Terms and conditions

The scholarship covers all tuition fees (for the fee liability period of the course) and provides a grant for living expenses at UKRI rates (£17,688 p.a. in 2022-23) for four years. The award is for Black or Mixed-Black students who are ordinary residents in the UK.
