2019 Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann Scholarship and Leadership Programme

Deadline: January 11 & 25, 2019.

The Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust is an educational charity set up by the late Lord Weidenfeld (right) and its chairman André Hoffmann (below).

The Trust provides around thirty graduate scholarships a year for young people from developing and emerging countries to study at Oxford and participate in a specially created Leadership Programme which gives them the tools to return to their countries and make a difference in whichever sphere they can. The Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffman Scholarship and Leadership Programme supports outstanding students from transition and emerging economies throughout Africa, Asia and South America to pursue a graduate degree at Oxford University.  It is managed by the Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust.

The Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust is the largest philanthropic scholarship supported by the University of Oxford.
