Daniel Slifkin Scholarship

St John's College

The Daniel Slifkin Scholarship was established by St John’s College in 2010 as a result of a generous endowment by Mr Daniel Slifkin, who took the BA in Jurisprudence and the Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) at the College.

The purpose of the scholarship is to enable a student to read for the degrees of BCL or Magister Juris (MJur) at St John’s College.  The scholarship is open to any student who has been awarded a place by the Oxford Law Faculty to read on one of these two courses.  It is open to a law graduate of any University, including (but not restricted to) undergraduate or graduate students of St. John’s College.  It is open to Home/EU Students or Overseas Students. The Scholarship covers full fees (University, whether Home/EU or Overseas, and College) and maintenance of the Scholar at the UK research council rate pro rata for the 10 month duration of the course (currently £12,507). The award is not means-tested. 

An applicant wishing to be considered for this scholarship should submit an application for the BCL or MJur to the Faculty of Law in the ordinary way by the January deadline.  There is no separate scholarship application process, and you do not need to have nominated St John’s as your first-choice college. The fundamental criterion for the award of the Scholarship is academic excellence.  The more specific criteria for this purpose are the same as those set by the Law Faculty for admission to the degrees, as explained on the Graduate Admission webpages

A secondary criterion for the award of the Scholarship is one of educational opportunity already enjoyed and for this reason, the College may, for example, give preference in deciding on the award-holder to an applicant who has not previously undertaken graduate studies in law.
