About Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann Scholarships and Leadership Programme

The University of Oxford Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Scholarships and Leadership Programme was established in 2015.

This scholarship is part of the Oxford Graduate Scholarships; which were established through a ground-breaking new matched funding initiative to enable the creation of fully-funded scholarships for graduate students of the highest calibre from across the world. The University contributes 40% of the funds for these scholarships, together with 60% from generous donations provided by supporters of the Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust; including Fondation Hoffmann. Fondation Hoffmann is a Swiss-based grant making institution supporting the emergence and expansion of concrete projects which address global problems in today’s societies.

The Leadership Programme is a unique part of these scholarships, and more information on this can be found on the Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust website.

The scholarship will cover 100% of course fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £15,609). Awards are also made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.
