Criteria for Eligibility and Selection
Clarendon Scholarships are given to graduate students from all around the world who have demonstrated exceptional academic merit and promise. Scholarships are available in all subject areas and are available to applicants who apply for a new master’s or doctoral programme before the January deadline.
Depending on the topic area and whether applicants are applying for a taught or research degree, the selection criteria differ somewhat.
Applications are evaluated using the following criteria as a guideline:
Outstanding academic achievements
A strong academic record is required. Most successful academics hold a first-class honours degree or its equivalent. For example, if the grade is out of four, a GPA of at least 3.7 is required, despite the fact that many Clarendon students obtain better grades. Alternatively, a candidate must have an outstanding Master’s academic record, with the understanding that a strong Master’s degree can compensate for a weak first degree. Depending on the strength of the sector, requirements may differ between disciplines and from year to year.
Individual grades on student transcripts, proof of past university honours or awards, information on your overall rank within your cohort, and publications are all examples of further evidence of strong academic accomplishment (if applicable).
Potential and aptitude for the future
An applicant’s future academic capacity and aptitude for the chosen course of study are given special attention. This may be determined by looking at references and research ideas to see if there is evidence of an applicant’s research aptitude and possibility of making a major contribution to the field of study.
Motivation of students
Evidence of the applicant’s dedication to the proposed course, as well as examination of the personal statement and referees’ reports, are used to determine this.
On this page, you’ll find the selection criteria.
