The Antonian Fund
St Antony's launched the Antonian Fund in 2013 to support the activities and initiatives of the College community. It is funded exclusively by donations from alumni and friends of the College; we are hugely grateful for their generosity.
The Antonian Fund was set-up to offer vital support to various areas of College life and academic study at St Antony's College, and since its inception has been able to suppport a hugely diverse range of projects. Grants are awarded across a number of cateogries, which you can read more about below. Click here to see a full list of grants awarded each term. Donors can choose to support one of these areas, or chose 'Greatest Need'.
Tax efficient donations are available, as well as offline donation options, which you can read more about here.
Travel and Research
Students and Fellows at St Antony's specialise in international area studies, so fieldwork and research trips play a vital part in their work. Much of this would not be possible without financial support.
Life at St Antony's
We are committed to supporting activities that enrich the student environment and expeirence. Donations to Life at St Antony's are put towards grants for societies, sports clubs, and other projects which benefit the cultral life of the College.

The Warden's Scholarship
St Antony's hopes to offer an increasing number of scholarships to MSc, MPhil, and DPhil students. With external funding becoming increasingly hard to find, we are committed to enabling students to fulfil their academic potential, regardless of background, and without being distracted by financial concerns.
'I would like to thank all the donors who made the continuation of my studies possible', Ozsel Beleli (DPhil Social Policy), Warden's Scholar
