Oxford-Pershing Square Graduate Scholarships, University of Oxford, UK


The Oxford Graduate Scholarships have been established through a groundbreaking new matched funding initiative to enable the creation of fully-funded scholarships for graduate students of the highest calibre from across the world. 2013-14 saw the very first Oxford Graduate Scholars begin their studies.
Scholarships are awarded to applicants who have demonstrated excellent academic ability, who will contribute to the University’s groundbreaking research, and who will go on to contribute to the world as leaders in their field, pushing the frontiers of knowledge. The University contributes 40% of the funds for these scholarships, together with 60% from generous donations provided by numerous supporters of the University and its colleges.
The Pershing Square Foundation supports exceptional leaders and innovative organizations that tackle important social issues and deliver scalable and sustainable impact. The Oxford-Pershing Square Graduate Scholarships for Oxford 1+1 MBA students provide a means to cultivate future leaders who will create positive change around the world. Oxford 1+1 MBA scholars combine intelligence and business acumen to result in meaningful and innovative action to solve problems like povertyclimate change and overpopulation, particularly in a complex world that changes so quickly. The Pershing Square Foundation is a private family foundation, established by Karen and Bill Ackman in 2006, and is based in New York city.
The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £13,863). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the MBA course.
