Scholarships

The financial assistance offered through our Scholarship and Bursary programme opens up the Goodenough community, attracting postgraduate students who will benefit most from what we offer and have the most to give to the life of the College. 

Goodenough Scholarships and Bursaries

The diversity of the Goodenough College community is what sets us apart. Our Members are drawn from around 80 different countries and varied socio-economic backgrounds, they study subjects ranging from Bioengineering to Opera Performance and bring a host of talent, interests and experience to College life.

The financial assistance offered through our Scholarship and Bursary programme opens up the Goodenough community, attracting postgraduate students who will benefit most from what we offer and have the most to give to the life of the College.

“The Scholarship and Bursary will have a long-term impact as I take my newfound knowledge, skills and experiences back to South Sudan and share them with others. Everything I have learnt here is preparing me for the future and will help me to do great things when I get home.”

Ambrose Odoch

In 2019-20 the College awarded £500,000 in Scholarships and Bursaries and a quarter of Members received some financial assistance from the College. Find out more about some of the Scholars who have benefited from our Scholarships and Bursaries programme.

Funded by our dedicated Alumni, long standing partners and the College itself, the programme includes both Residential Scholarships, that contribute to rent, and Community Scholarships that contribute to food, the Member experience and emergency financial assistance.

For those Members who find themselves in unexpected difficulty during their time at Goodenough, our emergency fund (The Mecklenburgh Fund) can ease financial pressures, allowing them to focus on getting the most out of their studies and College life.

Partner Scholarships
