Apply Online

If you are a young woman from the European Union, please consider applying to the University of Oxford (link), before mid-October of every year.


Prospective applicants need to apply separately and be successfully admitted in January to the University of Oxford in order to receive an OWAY scholarship.

We currently do not have the capacity to provide advice or assistance on how to apply to the University of Oxford, and we do not have control over any acceptance decisions.

Please refer to the University of Oxford undergraduate admissions web pages for more information.

If you are successfully admitted and have been granted an interview at a college, please email us at with your name, country, and the college at which you are being interviewed. Please only contact us if you have been granted an interview. We will contact you in February.

We cannot guarantee that we can provide you with a full scholarship, but we will do our best. We will select candidates based on their financial need, as well as on their potential to become world leaders and to bolster the human capital within their countries.

Qualifications: Please remember that successful applications may possibly require high A-level or International Baccalaureate, English TOEFL or IELTS, and course-specific exam scores, as well as subsequent in-person or electronic interviews. The British Council in your home country may have more information on these topics.

Finances: the University of Oxford accepts students regardless of whether or not you have enough funds to meet the tuition and living costs for 3-years of undergraduate study at the time when you submit your application. However, if you get accepted, you may need to show you have funding for at least one year’s worth of tuition and fees. Please contact the University of Oxford directly for more queries.
