The Christ Church Prize Scholarship will provide up to 13,500 Euro per year, including a 3,000 Euro tuition fee reduction, and will be available only to students who miss out on one of the University's Moritz-Heyman Scholarships.
Christ Church is also introducing maintenance subsidies of up to 50% for accommodation and food to students who do not receive University's Moritz-Heyman Scholarships or Christ Church Prize Scholarship. The college has also plans to set up a new access hub to strengthen ties with existing organizations which encourage and support students from less advantaged backgrounds.
Dr Jennifer Yee who is the Tutor for Admissions at Christ Church, said that she herself came from a non-Oxford background and found the environment at the college friendly and relaxed. She insisted that even though people from diverse backgrounds come at the college, steps need to be taken to broaden and maintain that diversity. This is the reason why the college has come up with these initiatives.
