In response to the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the refugee crisis it has caused, Balliol has launched an appeal to assist refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine, which will begin with providing a fully funded place for a refugee postgraduate student at Balliol and support a Researchers at Risk Fellowship in partnership with the British Academy.

The selected scholar will receive free accommodation and meals, a living stipend, their University and College fees waived and full inclusion within College life including membership of the MCR.

The scholarship is offered as part of a University-wide scheme to create up to 20 graduate scholarships for refugees from Ukraine for the 2022-23 academic year and continues Balliol’s long-standing tradition of support for refugees.

The immediate and generous support from Old Members, Fellows, students and friends has been overwhelming. Thank you.  Over £56,000 of funding towards the first and second year costs of the scholarship and fellowship has been secured, putting us in the best position to welcome a refugee scholar and researcher to Balliol as soon as possible. 

Balliol is committed to admitting outstanding students regardless of their background and providing financial support to all who need our help.

This is only possible thanks to Old Members and friends like you.

If you would like to invest in the future of scholars and researchers from Ukraine, please show your support and make your gift today.
