Scholarship programme with Oxford University

The Optiver Foundation has partnered with Oxford University to launch an international scholarship programme, that’s focussed on supporting women, from low and middle-income countries, to access STEM education at a postgraduate level. The programme will provide support for 30 master’s students over a period of five years. Scholars will receive full financial support for their course fees, as well as a stipend to cover living costs. The programme will also enable scholars to access tailored induction activities, mentoring and on-course support.


Providing equal opportunity to STEM

The Optiver Foundation has joined forces with Women Win to develop ‘Stemming the Gap: the Free STEM Fund.’ The fund envisions providing grants to youth-led, women-led and community-based organisations, social enterprises and educational institutions in the global south (including Latin America, Asia, Africa, and Oceania). Women Win will manage the fund using its unique approach to inclusive and participatory philanthropy.
