University of Oxford Frost Scholarship Programme
The Frost Scholarship Programme (Israel) funds current students of Israeli universities to study one-year, full-time master’s courses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (‘STEM’ subjects) at the University of Oxford.
The Programme is supported by the generosity of the Phillip and Patricia Frost Philanthropic Foundation. The first Frost scholars from Israel began their studies in October 2015, joining a cohort of Frost scholars from Florida. Over the next four years, the Frost Scholarship Programme will continue to offer four scholarships each year to students from Israel.
Frost scholars will also take part in an exclusive week-long orientation programme at one of Oxford’s oldest colleges, Exeter College, to introduce them to academic life at Oxford just before the start of their course.
The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and grant for living costs of £14,296. Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.
Decisions on applications received by the January deadlines are expected to be made around April 2016. Decisions on applications received by the March deadline are expected to be made around June 2016. If you have not heard from us by the time this page is updated to say that successful applicants have been notified, then please assume that your application has been unsuccessful. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we regret that we are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants individually or provide feedback on applications.

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit. In selecting the annual cohort of scholars, priority will be given to applicants in order to fulfil the aim of representing a range of subject areas.
Applicants who hold deferred offers to start in 2016-17 are not eligible to be considered for these scholarships.
HOW TO APPLY
There is no separate application process for this scholarship: in order to be considered, submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline (8 or 22 January 2016, depending on your course), or, for courses which are still accepting applications, by the 11 March 2016 deadline. See the Courses page for the deadlines applicable to your course.
To be eligible for consideration for this scholarship, applicants must be successful in being offered a place on their course after consideration of applications received by the relevant January or March deadlines. Course applications received by the January deadlines will be prioritised, however, this prioritisation does not apply to applications which are held over after the January deadline to be re-evaluated against applications received by the March deadline, or for applications which are put on a waiting list.
We will use the details you insert in the 'Nationality and ordinary residence' section of the graduate application form to assess your country of ordinary residence. For a definition of ordinary residence and further details on how to complete this section of the graduate application form, please see the 'Nationality and ordinary residence' sections of the graduate application form and also the Technical Help.
All graduate students at the University of Oxford benefit from membership not only of their department, but also of one of our multi-disciplinary colleges. Applicants may select a preferred college as part of their application or leave the allocation of a college to the University. Applicants are particularly encouraged to consider making Exeter College their preferred college, as this is where the pre-course orientation programme will be held. However, if Exeter College does not accept students for your course, or if you have another college preference, then specifying any other preferred college, or none, will not affect your chances of being offered a place on your course or being awarded a Frost Scholarship.
