The Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships) are offered to undergraduate students from low-income countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.

This scheme is only suitable for candidates who have received an offer and who are of the highest academic ability. Financial need and social commitment are also major criteria for selection. Applicants should be intending to return to their country of ordinary residence following their studies. Priority will be given to students who have not studied at undergraduate level before.

The scholarship cover tuition fees and college fees, a grant for living expenses and one return air fare per year for a duration of 3 or 4 years, depending on the course. Around 2-3 scholarships are awarded per year.
