Scholarship Description

Oxford Pershing Square Graduate Scholarships

Oxford Pershing Square Scholarship is open to international students from all over the world who are interested to pursue postgraduate studies at University of Oxford. Every year, up to five full scholarships are awarded by the Pershing Square Foundation to support outstanding 1+ 1 MBA students, covering both the Master’s and the MBA year. Pershing Square Scholars are outstanding people who can show the ability and dedication to discovering scalable and sustainable alternatives to cultural problems on a global scale. The scholarship is to follow any of the degrees of the associated Master and merge it with our MBA. It is also available if you are currently studying one of the Master’s partnering programs and would like to apply for MBA.

The Oxford Pershing Square Scholarship was established in 2014 and offers education financing, university charges and a supplement to living costs for both years of study. You would also benefit from mentoring and networking opportunities with inspiring individuals and organizations that are part of the community of the Pershing Square Foundation. You become integrated into the community of Saïd Business School by holding receptions and conferences with our dean, professors and other MBA academics as quickly as you start your Master’s degree. Over the course of both years, you can access and use the resources and networks of your department and Oxford Saïd. You will also be asked to a New York City summer ‘ walk’ organized by the Foundation Pershing Square, where you can engage in conferences and lectures with major innovators and shift manufacturers.
