Supporting our Students

At St Catharine’s, it has always been our ambition to provide an outstanding education to the most able students, regardless of wealth or background, and to support those students in their academic and extra-curricular activities while they are here.

In recent years with rising financial pressures on both undergraduate and postgraduate students, we have made it a priority to expand our range of bursaries and awards, both to attract the best students from all over the world to St Catharine’s, and to ensure that help is available for students to fulfil their potential. 

A donation to the Student Support Fund could make the difference between an exceptional student choosing to apply to St Catharine’s and applying to another College. By assuring students that support is available where it is needed, we can ensure that the vibrant and rigorous academic life of the College can be sustained, long into the future.

  • For undergraduates, we aim to fund a number of entrance bursaries, held for the entirety of the student’s undergraduate course, to support living costs whilst at St Catharine’s. 
  • For postgraduates, we wish to provide increased numbers of bursaries at MPhil and PhD level, held throughout the student’s course, to compensate for increased fees and reduced funding from Research Councils.
