Apply to The Antonian Fund

The Antonian Fund was launched in December 2013 in order to provide support for a range of activities, enhancing student life, academically, socially and culturally, at the College.

It is entirely funded by the generosity of St Antony’s alumni, and our donors can designate their support towards the following areas within the Scheme:

Thanks to our supporters’ generosity, funds are available to support scholarships, travel and research grants, student-life funds, bursaries for DPhil students, and academic projects.
