Every year, the Pershing Square Foundation awards up to five scholarships to support outstanding students on the 1+1 MBA. Pershing Square Scholars are exceptional individuals who can demonstrate the potential and commitment to finding scalable and sustainable solutions to world-scale social challenges. The scholarship is available to students pursuing any of the partnering Master’s degrees in combination with the MBA.
Established in 2014, the Oxford Pershing Square Scholarship provides funding for tuition, college fees and a contribution towards living expenses for the MBA year of the 1+1 MBA. Pershing Square Scholars also benefit from opportunities for mentorship and networking with inspirational individuals and organisations that are part of the Pershing Square Foundation’s community. Scholars become integrated into Saïd Business School’s community as soon as they begin their Master’s degree by attending receptions and meetings with our Dean, faculty and other MBA scholars. They can access and ultilise both their department and Oxford Saïd’s resources and networks throughout both years of their study. Pershing Square Scholars are also invited every spring to take a ‘trek’ to New York City hosted by the Pershing Square Foundation, during which they participate in meetings and workshops with leading innovators and change makers.
