Skoll MBA Scholarship for International Students at the University of Oxford UK

Skoll MBA Scholarship for International Students at the University of Oxford UK

The Skoll Scholarship is a competitive award for MBA students at the University of Oxford’s Sad Business School who want to find business solutions to urgent social and environmental problems. The scholarship pays for the full cost of the MBA program and some of the costs of living.

The Skoll Scholarship gives money to entrepreneurs who have started or been working on entrepreneurial projects with a social goal or who have chosen a career with a social impact and want to learn more about how the market works so they can be more effective in their future efforts to make social change.

The Scholarship is given in recognition that the MBA may represent a significant financial burden, particularly for those who have chosen to work in the social impact/innovation space rather than the purely commercial or public sectors.
