The OPP Graduate Scholarship program

The OPP Graduate Scholarships program offers a different type of scholarships, including partial and full scholarships, to deserving students. The admissions committee decides whether to award partial or full scholarships based on the individual merits and circumstances of each applicant.

Scholarships are awarded to students applying for a one-year master’s program at the University of Oxford (excluding MBA courses). You can apply if you have been studying longer than one year (for example M.Phil and D.Phil). In this case, OPP can provide partial support.

OPP generally does not cover air travel from Pakistan. However, in exceptional cases and depending on available resources, we can provide some travel support.
