In seeking to cultivate leaders of the future, the Programme selects students and young professionals with demonstrated leadership potential and a commitment to public service. It offers them the unique opportunity to:
- Pursue fully funded graduate studies at the University of Oxford with no restriction as to the chosen academic field;
- Participate in a comprehensive leadership programme providing them with the knowledge and skills needed to contribute to public life in their countries and regions of origin or globally; and
- Build lasting professional networks across cultures and continents.
Candidates must apply through the official University of Oxford application process by January 2012 (6 January 2012 for Medical Sciences and Philosophy students; 20 January 2012 for all other subjects) and need to be accepted by the university before being considered for the Weidenfeld Scholarship.
