Current Fundraising Priorities: The Merton-Oxford Bursary Scheme

Approximately one quarter of Merton's undergraduates come from a lower-income household and receive a Merton-Oxford bursary. This bursary is automatically awarded on a sliding scale to any student with a household income of £42,875 or less, with those most in need receiving £3,700 per annum. These bursaries contribute to the cost of accommodation, food, study materials, and other essential living costs.

All money donated to this Fund will help provide much-needed Undergraduate bursaries and will leverage the next £25m tranche of Moritz-Heyman money (a significant pledge of £75 million, from Christ Church alumnus Michael Moritz and his wife Harriet Heyman, towards the funding of bursaries for the most financially disadvantaged undergraduate students).

Support the bursary scheme with a gift to the Undergraduate Student Support Fund from the UK | from outside the UK
