Liaquat Ali Khan Studentships

This will allow such students to focus on their study at Oxford without academic constraint, and take full advantage of the plethora of academic opportunities on offer at Oxford. The Liaquat Ali Khan Studentship is open to graduate students throughout the year and will be awarded according to specific need, with a minimum grant of £1,000.
