With the generous support of Alumni and friends of the College, Lincoln is able to provide a number of substantial bursaries for students from lower-income households who are normally resident in the United Kingdom and who are in receipt of an Oxford Bursary.
There is no application form to fill in for these awards. Eligible candidates are identified by the College's Sudent Support and Hardship Panel, using information on household income assessment provided by the regional student loan organisations. In making the awards, the College will take into account a range of factors in addition to household income. Priority will be given to students who have been educated at schools with below-average performance at GCSE and/or A-level or with little history of sending their students to Oxford, or who live in area with lower average incomes or lower participation rates in higher education.
In most cases, the awards can renewed each year until the end of the student's undergraduate course.
