The Ellison Scholars program seeks at least twenty candidates from around the world each year who are passionate about solving humanity’s most serious problems. Scholars are expected to fully commit to their studies at the University of Oxford and their ongoing project work with the Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine (EIT).

A Scholar’s relationship with the Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine (EIT) will continue even after they receive their degree from Oxford. They will have ongoing access to EIT technology and resources as they work towards making significant changes in their home countries and globally. Projects may receive long-term funding as spin-off companies. Additionally, Alumni Scholars are expected to mentor and guide future Scholars.

The academic scholarship covers all course fees at the University of Oxford and provides a generous stipend for travel, programming, accommodation, and living expenses. This multi-year program includes paid internships, allowing scholars to continue working on projects within EIT’s humanitarian initiatives.

Each Scholar will be selected by an EIT Faculty Fellow to collaborate on their project. All projects are multidisciplinary and involve a team that includes other Scholars, Faculty Fellows, EIT scientists and engineers, as well as students and faculty from affiliated universities, all working together to help the Scholar achieve their goals.

Application Procedure for the Fully Funded  Ellison Scholarship

To become an Undergraduate or Graduate Ellison Scholar, applicants must follow separate application routes. Admission to the program requires selection by the Ellison Institute and acceptance by the University of Oxford through their standard, independent process.

Undergraduate Ellison Scholars will work on a project year-round alongside their university studies, and full-time during much of the University’s long vacation (i.e., the summer break). This unique scholarship program allows students to work with world-leading experts to solve real-world problems through technology while pursuing a fully-funded undergraduate degree at one of the top universities in the world.

This list is not exhaustive; candidates with skill sets and ambitions aligned with EIT’s humanitarian endeavors are encouraged to apply.

For more information, refer to the Selection Criteria tab to assess your alignment with our program. The application form and process will ask you to demonstrate how you meet our criteria, why you are a good fit for this program, your chosen humanitarian endeavor, and the associated project.
