The Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann Scholarship is designed to offer exceptional university graduates and professionals hailing from developing and emerging economies the opportunity to embark on fully-funded graduate studies at the University of Oxford. This unique scholarship program is complemented by an extensive framework for leadership development, sustained mentorship, and networking.
The inception of the Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann Scholarships and Leadership Programme dates back to 2015, in commemoration of Lord Weidenfeld’s 95th birthday, made possible by the generous contributions of multiple donors. In June 2017, Trustee and Chairman André Hoffmann further bolstered the initiative with a substantial donation of £9 million to the Trust. This contribution, combined with £6 million in matched funding from Oxford University, effectively doubled the scale and impact of the Oxford-Weidenfeld and Hoffmann Scholarships and Leadership Programme.
