As a Pershing Square scholar you will receive funding for both your Master’s degree and MBA programme course fees. The scholarship also provides at least £15,609 towards living expenses for both years of study.
- Applicants to the Oxford 1+1 MBA Programme.
- Applicants who apply to any full-time one-year Master’s course that is not currently part of the official list of partner 1+1 MBA Programme; and to the MBA (as a separate application).
- Current Oxford students on a non-MBA course, who are applying to the MBA after the completion of their current Master’s/DPhil course (with no gap year(s)).
You must meet the entry requirements for both the Oxford MBA and your chosen Master’s programme.
Candidates must submit a complete application for both courses and upload the scholarship essay in the Funding section of the 1+1 MBA programme application. You must answer the following the question with no more than 500 words: ‘How do you intend to change the world? What does this tell us about you as a person?’
Each of the partnering Master’s programmes has its own application form, deadlines and requirements. To be considered for the Pershing Square Scholarship, you must apply by 12 January 2022 for the 1+1 MBA and by your chosen Master’s programme deadline either in December 2021 or January 2022.
