The first Indian scholars under this scheme began studies at Oxford in October 2013. Scholars, equipped with their training and expertise, and return to India at the end of their studies to lead change in their own country.
The Centre provides funding for talented Indian graduate students who would not otherwise be able to take up their places at Oxford. We have six scholars at the Centre this year, studying various aspects of sustainable development. As part of the tough selection process, all had to demonstrate a commitment to returning to India. As well as their in-depth studies, they attend the inter-disciplinary seminars arranged by the Centre and have the opportunity to participate in leadership and social entrepreneurship training – this year, through a major project in collaboration with the Skoll Centre at the Said Business School.
