University of Oxford’s Said Business School is now accepting applications for the Skoll Scholarship. This is a comparative scholarship for incoming MBA Students who pursue entrepreneurial solutions for urgent social and environmental challenges.
The Scholarship provides funding and exclusive opportunities to meet with world-renowned entrepreneurs, thought-leaders and investors.
The Skoll Scholarship provides tuition for entrepreneurs who have set up or have been working in entrepreneurial ventures with a social purpose, and who wish to improve their knowledge of market-oriented practices so they can be more effective in their subsequent social change pursuits.
The Scholarship is given in recognition that the MBA may represent a significant financial burden, particularly for those who have chosen to work in social ventures rather than the commercial or public sectors.
You must have started and grown a social venture that has been running for at least three years or have been responsible for leading a major expansion of an existing social venture or Programme within that venture.
You must demonstrate some evidence of your need for the scholarship (e.g. circumstances that make self-funding the MBA a significant financial burden)
DEADLINE: March 19 2017
