Our Scholarships

Scholarship Criteria

The criteria of the Hill Scholarships emphasise, alongside scholastic attainments, a series of human qualities including truth and courage, sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship.

The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and a grant for living costs (£14,553 per year in 2017-18). Awards are made for the full duration of the fee liability for the agreed course.


Eligibility for Scholarships

Applicants for Hill Scholarships must be nationals of and ordinary residents in the Russian Federation. They must also have a first degree from a Russian university, and they must not subsequently have been enrolled in any other degree programme outside of Russia.

Applicants that are offered this scholarship will be required to confirm that they will return to Russia for at least one year, following completion of their studies in the UK.

There is no restriction as to the field of study pursued by holders of Hill Scholarships. Most Hill Scholars come to Oxford to do research or study for a higher degree but the Trustees also encourage applications from graduates of Russian Universities who would like to benefit from the experience of the Oxford tutorial system and take a ‘second first degree’. This enables a student better scope also for experiencing Oxford college life to the full.

This scholarship is not open to applications from candidates who hold deferred offers to start in 2018-19.

Please see the Hill Foundation Scholarship profile on the University of Oxford website for more details of the eligibility criteria for graduate applicants, and for undergraduate applicants:
