Applications are invited from suitably qualified graduates who are applying for entry to the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies in October 2016 , or from existing students applying to commence a DPhil with the Centre. The Centre for Socio-Legal Studies welcomes students who wish to pursue research in any aspect of socio-legal studies. The Scholarship is open to those seeking entry directly to the DPhil and to those applying for the MSt who plan to continue to the DPhil. It is awarded on the basis of academic merit and potential.

The Scholarship is open to Home/EU students and will cover their full costs including the University composition fee, the College fee, and maintenance costs at the current UK Research Council rate. The successful scholar will become a member of Wolfson College.
 
There is no separate application process. Applicants, whether internal or external, should apply to the University of Oxford under the standard procedures for graduate degrees for 2016–17. If there are two or more candidates of equal academic merit, priority will be given to the candidate who has listed Wolfson as his or her first choice college on the University application form.
 
The Oxford Wolfson Marriott Scholarships have been made possible by a donation to Wolfson College from the late Dr Francis Marriott, who was a University Lecturer and Fellow of Wolfson from 1970 to his death in 2012. Dr Marriott con ducted research in the field of biomathematics, and taught statistics.
