St Antony’s College Swire Centenary & Cathay Pacific and SwireCathay Pacific Scholarships
The Swire Educational Trust has a longstanding relationship with St Antony's College and has over many years funded numerous scholarships for both students and Academic Visitors, as well as until 2014 funding the Swire Fellow Professor Rosemary Foot, now an Emeritus Professor at St Antony's College.
The scholarships are open to applicants who are permanent residents of Japan or China (for the Swire Centenary & Cathay Pacific awards) or Hong Kong (for the Swire/Cathay Pacific awards) who have completed the majority of their formal education in Japan (for Japanese permanent residents), China (for Chinese permanent residents) or Hong Kong (for Hong Kong permanent residents).
The scholarships will be awarded primarily on academic merit, although financial need may be taken into account.
How do I apply?
In order to be considered for this scholarship, you must submit your application for graduate study to the University by the January deadline (8 or 22 January 2016 depending on the programme you apply to - please check the University's guidance on application deadlines) and you must have secured a place on your chosen programme of study by the expected final decision date (18 March 2016).
It would help if you select St Antony's College in the college choice section of the application form, though this is not compulsory.
You must also complete a Swire Scholarships application form, available to download at the bottom of this page, and email it to the Assistant College Registrar by noon UK time on Friday 8 April 2016.
Please note that incomplete and ineligible applications will not be considered for the Swire Scholarships. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we do not send emails acknowledging receipt of any applications which are incomplete or which are ineligible.
Following a meeting of the Swire selection committee at St Antony’s College, all nominations are reviewed by the Swire Educational Trust. We hope to be able to email successful candidates in early May 2016.
If you have any questions about this scholarship which are not answered above, please email the Assistant College Registrar.
