The Oxford-Reuben Graduate Scholarships were created as part of the Reuben Foundation’s landmark £80m gift to the University, and in this endowing Reuben College. The Foundation is committed to the betterment of society in the UK and around the globe through focused charitable giving in the areas of education, health and the community. The University has supplemented the £15m hypothecated to Reuben College scholarships with £7.5m from the Graduate Endowment Matched Scholarships initiative. This aims to support students who have demonstrated excellent academic ability and potential, and who will go on to make a great impact in their future careers.
Reuben College was founded in 2019 as the 39th college at the University of Oxford. To promote the ethos and practice of interdisciplinary interaction, there is an initial focus on four research clusters within the college, whose themes have been chosen for their wide reach across the University, their strongly interdisciplinary nature, Oxford’s existing and potential strengths in these areas, and their innovation and entrepreneurship potential. Each of the four areas is interpreted as broadly as possible, as the College is keen both to host students from all four of the University’s Academic Divisions (Medical Sciences, Maths, Physical & Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities) and to support the admission and progression of students from under-represented demographics.
