For the academic year 2023–2024, St. Antony’s College, the University of Oxford, and Eni, a global integrated energy business, are offering fully funded scholarships to students from qualified African nations.
Regardless of financial circumstances, St. Antony’s will be able to accept up to three of the brightest African students, adding immensely to the college’s diversity and intellectual character. This is a component of an effort being jointly undertaken by Eni and St. Antony’s College to strengthen and invest in African leadership.
Both St. Antony’s and Eni are equally eager to encourage Eni Scholars to continue their education when they graduate from Oxford or to find rewarding employment in their home nation, and where this is feasible, to offer structured incentives.
Scholars will be notified of pertinent relationships and partnerships as they develop through continuous discussions about this.
