About DAC

The DAC List of ODA Recipients shows all countries and territories eligible to receive official development assistance (ODA). These consist of all low and middle income countries based on gross national income (GNI) per capita as published by the World Bank, with the exception of G8 members, EU members, and countries with a firm date for entry into the EU. The list also includes all of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) as defined by the United Nations (UN). By assisting students from these countries the college aims to help students who otherwise would not be able to go on to graduate study, and to increase diversity within our student body.

About the scholarship

St Antony’s College is offering the opportunity to study for a fully funded one-year degree in 2023/24. The St Antony's DAC Scholarship is open to students who have:

  • completed their undergraduate degree in a country that receives official development from the OECD. For the list of these countries, please follow this link.
  • applying for any one-year degree offered by St Antony’s College (except for the MBA and MPP)

The scholarship will pay course fees and a stipend at the current UKRI rate. A committee at St Antony’s will review the applications and award The St Antony’s DAC Scholarship on merit.
