Undergraduate Ellison Scholars Projects

For those applying to the Ellison Scholars programme for undergraduate study at the University of Oxford

Explore the current list of Ellison Scholars projects here.

The innovation projects aim to solve global problems through technology and are at the centre of gravity for both EIT and the Ellison Scholars programme. The programme is looking to find outstandingly talented people who have the skills and abilities to contribute significantly to specific projects within our humane endeavours. Exact projects will be determined when students enter the programme.

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). Working shoulder-to-shoulder with world-leading experts to solve real-world problems through technology whilst studying for a fully-funded undergraduate degree at one of the top universities in the world is what sets this scholarship programme apart.

The projects would benefit from skills in computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics and statistics, robotics, plant sciences, machine learning, chemistry and chemical engineering, biology and molecular biology, engineering, physics / nuclear physics, medicine, and microbiology. This list is not exhaustive and any candidates with skillsets and ambitions aligned with EIT’s humane endeavours are welcome to apply.

More information can be found under the Selection Criteria tab to help you assess alignment with our programme. Our application form and process will ask you to demonstrate how you meet our criteria, why you are a good fit for this programme, your chosen humane endeavour and associated project.
