Clarendon Fund Scholarship

Dear Dan,

Congratulations on your admission to the University of Oxford. I am delighted to offer you a Clarendon Fund scholarship to study for the full-time BPhil in Philosophy at Oxford University from October 2008 until September 2010. The Clarendon Fund was established in 2001 and makes awards to the most academically able international graduate students to study at the University of Oxford. Around 100 awards were made in 2007/08, which represented less than 5% of the total number of applicants to this prestigious scholarship.

Your Clarendon Fund scholarship will cover the following:

100% of the tuition fee for both of the two years of your course

100% of the college fee for both of the two years of your course

A full grant for living expenses for both of the two years of your course (£12,940 in 2008/09)

If you decide to undertake a DPhil upon completion of your BPhil degree, you may apply to the Clarendon Fund for a scholarship to cover the cost of your doctoral studies. The Humanities Clarendon Award Panel looks favourably upon such applications.

Today, about the same time:

Dear Dan,

Many thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Further congratulations are in order as I am now able to confirm that Exeter College have decided to accept your application and to award you their Peter Thompson Scholarship to be held in conjunction with the Clarendon scholarship. Well done on being awarded two prestigious scholarships! As such, I have issued a revised offer letter that is attached to this message.
It's been a hellish year. Here comes the sun, as they say.
