Green Templeton is home to exceptionally talented graduate students who come from all over the world to study at Oxford, and the College seeks to attract the brightest and best students, irrespective of their background or financial circumstances.
We offer opportunities to exceptional students, who can benefit from studying at GTC, on a needs-blind basis. Many of them will become leaders in their fields, whose research or work has the potential to have an enormous impact on society.
At the moment, we offer special support - with fees and/or living expenses - to about 10 per cent of the student body each year. By 2018, at the end of our first decade, the College will have supported 79 students through 27 graduate entry medical bursaries, and 52 scholarships. But we would like to do more. One of our goals is to protect the range and depth of our existing programme against inflation and to extend support to more than 25 per cent of our students.
There are naming opportunities available, both for existing and for newly-funded scholarships. Please email the Development Office for further details.
"Without support from GTC, I probably would have ended up studying in the States - not a bad option, of course, but I am thrilled to be experiencing Oxford's unique traditions while pursuing my PhD. The College's generosity has allowed me to expand my horizons, not only scientifically, but also culturally and personally."

Helping students achieve their potential was Sir David Watson's passion.
Throughout his distinguished career of 40 years, Sir David was one of the UK's leading higher education academics. Whatever his role, students were at the heart of his concern.
He had a passion for finding ways to enable students to get the most from their education. As a tribute to his commitment to students and to education more widely, the College has created The Sir David Watson DPhil Scholarship.
This will be awarded to an outstanding scholar who has been accepted by the University and the College to undertake a DPhil within the social sciences. The Scholarship will be awarded once every three to four years; thus there will be one Sir David Watson Scholar in the College at a time. The first scholar will be appointed in 2017.
The Oxford-Sir David Weatherall Graduate Scholarship
The MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) and Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford are working together to establish a permanent international scholarship in medical sciences in honour of Professor Sir David Weatherall. Sir David (an Honorary Fellow of GTC) founded the WIMM in 1989 and was the Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford from 1992 to 2000.
The WIMM has recently established a comprehensive, fully integrated student programme, which is open to young scientists from all corners of the world and aims to attract the very best young graduates.
These students train in one of the world's leading molecular medicine institutes (WIMM) and are hosted within Oxford's premier college for the development of education in medicine (GTC).
