All Clarendon Scholarships cover tuition and college fees in full.Therefore, successful applicants on a full-time course will receive a general annual grant for living costs. This was about £15,009 for 2020/2021. However, Scholars on a part-time course will receive a study support grant to assist with non-fee costs.
