Welcome

The Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust is an educational charity set up by the late Lord Weidenfeld (right) and its chairman André Hoffmann (below).

The Trust provides around thirty graduate scholarships a year for young people from developing and emerging countries to study at Oxford and participate in a specially created Leadership Programme which gives them the tools to return to their countries and make a difference in whichever sphere they can.

The Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Trust is the largest philanthropic scholarship supported by the University of Oxford.

The Trust is now permanently established at the University of Oxford thanks to our Endowment. Spearheaded by our Chairman and benefactor André Hoffmann and Trustee and donor Michael Lewis the Endowment ensures the Scholarships Programme in perpetuity. André Hoffmann’s support for the Trust, the largest philanthropic scholarship supported by the University of Oxford, in conjunction with matched funding from the University, has been transformational in strengthening the Trust and the Scholarships and Leadership Programme.

The Trust continues to focus on cultivating future leaders to address current and future global challenges, particularly those relating to emerging and transitional economies.

Here is a brief flavour of our activities over the last few days at our Moral Philosophy Seminar. It's been wonderful to meet our new Scholar cohort and get to know them better. There have been MP seminars on the ethics of leadership and liberty, the launch of the WHT Enterprise Challenge, orientation around Oxford and so much more. Please follow our Instagram and Twitter feeds for more day by day info. Only one more day to go! #MPS18

29 new Scholars join us today from 21 different countries across the world. They are coming together for the first element of the WHT Scholarships and Leadership Programme: the Moral Philosophy Seminar. This intensive four-day programme of discussions on political and moral philosophy features key texts from Confucius, Mahatma Gandhi and Adam Smith amongst others.
As well as an academic grounding Scholars will get a chance to meet each other, familiarise themselves with Oxford and take part in various social activities. We’ll be updating our social media accounts to keep everyone up to date with the events of the weekend – don’t forget to check back with us to find out how it's going.
