Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship
Research Accelerator Grants
The Skoll Centre’s Research Accelerator Grants support Early Career Researchers at the University of Oxford to explore new social entrepreneurship-related research ideas, or to extend the impact of their existing research.
This year, three grants of up to £12,000 were made available for academic projects that actively contribute to the Skoll Centre’s mission: ‘to accelerate the impact of entrepreneuring activity that aims to transform unjust or unsatisfactory systems and practices’. Funds are there to support ‘first steps’ into new research areas or ‘last mile’ projects boosting the impact of completed research work.
