David Butler Scholarship

We are in the final stages of fundraising for the Oxford-Nuffield-Sir David Butler Scholarship in Politics, which will support one student per year in perpetuity.

Just as a young David Butler started his career studying elections during the turbulent post-war period, this scholarship will enable today’s young academics to analyse this current period of great change and volatility.

With a gift to the David Butler Scholarship, you enable the young academics, policy, and change-makers of tomorrow to cut through the noise and help clarify and navigate, with excellent socio-scientific precision, what looks to be an increasingly complex future. 

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, we are closing in on the finish line for the scholarship’s endowment. We are over two-thirds of the way there, with just over £100,000 left to raise. The College will match your gift 1:1 and the University 2:1 until July 2021, a brilliant incentive to give! No gift is too small.
