This student scholarship programme will recruit approximately twenty students from around the world each year, providing a full scholarship for study at the University of Oxford. Together, they will collaborate on projects in EIT’s four areas of humane endeavours: medical science and healthcare; food security and sustainable agriculture; clean energy and climate change; and government policy and economics. This programme will expedite the Scholars’ journeys to becoming global technology innovators and leaders of the future.

Scholars will also receive mentorship from world leaders, scientist and entrepreneurs in the EIT Faculty of Fellows, led by Dr David Agus, Founding Director & CEO of EIT and Visiting Professor of Medicine at the University of Oxford; Professor Sir John Bell, Regius Professor of Medicine at the University of Oxford; and Sir Tony Blair, Executive Chairman of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change (TBI).
