Early Career Research Fellowship

The Skoll Centre’s Early Career Research (ECR) Fellowship programme recognises and supports early career academics working to generate knowledge that accelerates social entrepreneurship. Our first cohort of ECR Fellows are DPhil students, or have recently completed a DPhil, at Saïd Business School, and work across a variety of topics around social entrepreneurship and social impact. The Fellows are actively involved in many areas of Skoll Centre life including contributing to seminars, blogs and publications.
