The Antonian Fund offers vital support to various areas of College life and academic study.  It is funded exclusively by donations from alumni and friends of the College and we are hugely grateful for the generosity of our donors.

Since its inception in 2014, the Antonian Fund has supported a hugely diverse range of projects.  Grants are awarded across a number of categories, which you can read more about here.  Donors can choose to support a specific area, or choose 'Greatest Need'.

DAC Scholarship

“The DAC scholarship is the foundational dais that holds my dreams, it is the most important and brightest light at the beginning of my Oxford journey, it is my testimony. Being the first-ever recipient is incredibly overwhelming and inspiring at the same time. I am grateful to the sponsors of the scholarship and St. Antony’s college for such a life-altering opportunity.” - Samira Mohammed Ibn Moro, St Antony’s first-ever DAC Scholarship Recipient (2022-23)

St Antony’s is committed to enabling students to fulfil their academic potential, regardless of background or financial concerns. In October 2021, the College Governing Body agreed to a proposal to raise funds for scholarships that will be awarded to students who completed their undergraduate degrees in countries that receive Development Assistance (as identified by the OECD).

Awarding scholarships such as this is not possible without the support of the worldwide Antonian community, and we are immensely grateful to all of our supporters, who have contributed to the Scheme during the 2022-23 academic year.


The Warden, Professor Roger Goodman CBE, was awarded £2,193.24 to cover the costs of having an Artist-in-Residence at St Antony's, Dr Karen Aare.

From 5-18 June 2023, Dr Aare stayed in guest accommodation as she studied the Oxford Botanic Gardens, as well as photographing, drawing, and painting the St Antony's College gardens.

The aim was to explore how the gardens frame the buildings and define the spaces between them, as well as investigate how the gardens are used by students and staff.

The results are still a work in progress, and the plan is for the final products to be displayed in a small exhibition at St Antony's in autumn 2024.

Graduate Inequality Review

The Graduate Inequality Review received £150 for the maintenance costs of their website, as well as to facilitate the active involvement of St Antony's students in the publication, either as editors, authors, or readers.

Students were able to attend a conference on Inequality and the Future at the end of the year, providing a forum for discussion of the most pressing challenges that their generation faces.

With the maintenance of the website and ability to promote their conference in July, the Graduate Inequality Review was able to boast over 80 attendees and enjoyed the participation of renowned speakers such as Professor Aaron Reeves.

Poetry Nights & Bookcase for Language Immersion Programme

Students received £250 for equipment needed for Language Immersion Nights and the installation of a bookcase in the CCR.

Events were well-attended, and included evenings of non-English poetry and a non-English karaoke night.

Oxford Middle East Review (OMER)

The Oxford Middle East Review was awarded £250, to be put towards journal and website design costs.

The Antonian Fund enabled OMER to conduct a series of activities, including: live blogging the Turkish presidential election, collaborating with the Oxford Political Review to host a panel discussion on the election, and hosting Iraqi poet Amal al-Jubouri for a poetry reading at the Middle East Centre.
