Pershing Square Scholarship was established in 2014 and supports candidates through both years of the Oxford 1+1 MBA programme.
Serving communities in need of basic healthcare, working towards equitable education systems and fighting pollution are just some of the aims this year’s exceptional Pershing Square Scholars are working on. All Oxford 1+1 MBA students, they have been awarded scholarships by the Pershing Square Foundation.
Established in 2006, the Foundation helps to tackle the world’s most pressing social issues, by supporting innovative leaders and organisations.
The 1+1 MBA launched in 2011 and allows students to combine the Oxford MBA with another Oxford University degree.
Since 2014, The Foundation has worked with Oxford Saïd to award full scholarships to outstanding individuals on the Oxford 1+1 MBA. These scholarships cover costs of Master's degrees from several Oxford University departments, as well as the School's one-year MBA, living expenses, and other education fees.
Successful recipients can also take part in prestigious events throughout the year. Previous opportunities have included the Skoll World Forum, Ditchley Conference, and treks to New York City, hosted by the Foundation, which included access to meetings and workshops.
Six recipients were awarded the Scholarship this year – Natnael Araya Abraham, Ryan Caplin, Sophie Fry, Raffy Maristela, Diego Rojas Arancibia and Isabela Uribe.
