Programme, launched in May 2007, offers outstanding postgraduate

the unique opportunity to:

* Pursue fully funded graduate studies at the University of Oxford

– The knowledge and skills needed to contribute to public life in,
and play a transformational role in the development of, their
countries and regions of origin;
