Scholarships, awards and prizes are provided by New College, the University and by many other donors.
They are usually awarded based on academic performance.
Scholarships are awarded primarily for academic achievement, but some may also consider need or require achievement in other areas such as leadership, artistic endeavors or athletics. Some are awarded on admission to the University, based on secondary school performance, others are awarded in-course, on the basis of university performance.
Several graduation book prizes, for excellence in specific subject areas, are awarded upon graduation.
Honour awards, for contribution to student life are made annually to students who have been active in college/university life.
