Felix scholarships enable first-class Indian students to pursue full-time graduate studies at the University of Oxford, University of Reading and the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (SOAS). Awards are made for the full duration of a student’s fee liability for the agreed course. There are six such scholarships which cover university and college fees; living expenses; return air fare, additional allowances for books, equipment, warm clothing etc. The scholarships are intended for students who would be unable without financial assistance to take up their place at Oxford.
