Supporting the ecosystem

To help facilitate and nurture the development of research and talent the Skoll Centre runs a number of awards, grants, and competitions that are open to a variety of individuals and teams. 

Skoll Venture Awards Tile Logo
The Skoll Venture Awards are awarded to alumni/students of the School who demonstrate a deep understanding of the problem they seek to address, and whose ventures are deemed to have high potential to create large-scale social impact.
The Global Challenge - Tile Logo
The Global Challenge is a chance for students and recent graduates to learn more about the issues they care about and present their findings to the world. Tackling global challenges starts with understanding a problem and its wider context, rather than jumping straight into a business plan or an idea for a quick fix.

Available to doctoral and post-doctoral students (or other similar research position) at the University of Oxford.
