Apply for a St Antony’s Blues Grant

Blues Grants are aimed at supporting St Antony’s students who represent the University in any sport.

About the St Antony’s Blues Grant

The College is able to award a small number of Blues Grants, funded by the Antonian Fund. This fund is to assist students who represent the University of Oxford in a full Blue or half Blue sport with their costs. Students participating in sport at University level can apply for a grant of up to £150 towards the costs of their sporting activity. A limited number of grants are available and will be awarded once a year in Hilary term.

Students may apply once a year, each year they are on course and in fee liability.

Selection criteria

Preference will be given to students who can demonstrate a high level of sporting achievement and who have not applied previously. Financial need may also be considered.
