2018 Skoll Scholarship at the University of Oxford in UK

The Skoll Scholarship provides full funding plus a living stipend to complete a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School.

Why apply to be a Skoll Scholar?
• Receive exclusive opportunities to meet with world-renowned entrepreneurs, thought-leaders, and investors.
• Take your social impact to the next level.
• Gain professional, leadership, and business skills.
• Become a part of the Skoll Scholar community, a group of leaders who are positively impacting the world through innovation and system change.

Eligibility criteria
For preferably at least three years you must have: started and grown a social venture, led a major expansion of an existing social initiative within an organisation, OR have been creating positive change as an impact career professional, i.e. using entrepreneurial approaches to address the same social/environmental issue with a clear core thread that unites your work.
You must demonstrate some evidence of your need for the Scholarship (e.g. circumstances that make self-funding the MBA a significant financial burden).
You must demonstrate how a business education can contribute to the wider development of the community within which you work.
You will need to illustrate why a business degree at this stage of your career can help amplify your impact. You must demonstrate evidence of personal qualities strongly resonating with social entrepreneurial leadership, e.g. bias toward action rather than reflection and persistence in pursuing a social/environmental impact goal.
