Annually, the Pershing Square Foundation grants up to six full scholarships to outstanding students pursuing a 1+1 MBA, which includes both a master’s degree and an MBA year.
The University of Oxford’s Pershing Square Graduate Scholarships offers full scholarship coverage under Oxford’s 1+1 MBA Program. This is Oxford University’s one-year full-time MBA program combined with one of the one-year master’s programs offered by other university departments.
Application deadline: January 12, 2022
Benefits of the Oxford Pershing Graduate Scholarships
Successful applicants of the scheme shall receive support for both their master’s degree and MBA program course costs as a Pershing Square scholar. In addition, the scholarship covers at least £15,609 in living expenses for two years of study.

- Applicants who apply to any full-time one-year Master’s course that is not currently part of the official list of partner 1+1 MBA Program; and to the MBA (as a separate application).
- Current Oxford students on a non-MBA course, who are applying to the MBA after the completion of their current Master’s/DPhil course (with no gap year(s)).
Applicants must meet the entry requirements for both the Oxford MBA and their chosen master’s program.
How to Apply
Candidates must complete an application for both courses and attach the scholarship essay in the 1+1 MBA program application’s Funding section.

Each of the master’s programs in partnership has its own application process, deadlines, and requirements. To be considered for the Pershing Square Scholarship, you must apply for the 1+1 MBA by 12 January 2022 and for your master’s degree by the December 2021 or January 2022 deadline.
