Funding and Awards For All Students

Learning Grants

Green Templeton College students can apply for up to £220 per fee-paying year (£110 per fee-paying year for part-time students) to attend relevant conferences or to undertake course-related fieldwork.

Some students may have other study-related needs, such as learning a language to enable research of primary sources, or purchasing a specialised software package to analyse data.

The allocation may be carried forward to subsequent years if unused; but cannot be spent after completion of the course. Clinical medical (BM) students receive a double allowance in their final year to assist with the costs of the final year elective.

Further details and an application form can be found here on the Intranet (college sign-on required)

Competitive Conference and Fieldwork Funding

In addition to Learning Grants, the Competitive Conference and Fieldwork Funding (CCFF) scheme provides financial support of up to £500 towards course-related activities.

Applications are open to all enrolled Green Templeton students.

Further details, including deadlines and the criteria against which applications will be assessed, and an application form can be found here on the Intranet (college sign-on required).

CCFF awards are funded by Green Templeton including a generous donation from Emeritus Fellow, Christopher Adams.


Annual Fund

Information for 2020/21 to follow.

The Annual Fund is able to provide grants for academic-related activities (student academic events and initiatives, including professional development) and support for college life (for example, sports, societies, improvements to college facilities).

Applications are accepted from any current student, and from staff with direct responsibility for students’ academic needs and wellbeing. A request could range from a small, one-off event to funding or part-funding to set up a larger, ongoing project.

Students wishing to hold events should ensure that they have contacted the Conference and Events Manager to discuss availability and potential dates before making an application. Activities are expected to acknowledge the support of the Green Templeton Annual Fund as appropriate and produce a short report on the activity that may be used for future publicity materials.

Further information and an application form can be found on the Intranet Funding Support and Awards page (college sign-on required).

Please note:
Funding will not be given from this source for personal academic needs such as conference attendance. Students should use their Learning Grant allowance or apply for Competitive Conference and Fieldwork Funding.


Extra-Curricular Activities

Financial support for Oxford University Programme in Languages (Fast Track)

Fast Track is run by the University of Oxford Language Centre. It is an early evening programme of courses lasting a full academic year, currently available in nine languages. Learners are expected to be highly motivated and well organised, and places are limited and competitive.

Green Templeton students who are selected for places on Fast Track courses may claim back 50% of the fee on the following conditions:

  • A student who is allocated a place on a Fast Track course must notify the Academic Administrator at the beginning of the course (by the end of Week 2 of Michaelmas term).
  • The student should successfully complete the course.
  • At the end of the course, the student should produce their certificate to the Academic Administrator in order to claim back the appropriate funding.

All Green Templeton students on any programme are eligible for this support.

Students are strongly advised to read this information on the Oxford University Language Centre website before applying. If you have any further queries about this support, please contact the Academic Administrator.
