Louis Dreyfus Foundation Scholarship

The Louis Dreyfus-Weidenfeld Scholarship and Leadership Programme supports outstanding postgraduate students from transition and emerging economies throughout Africa, Asia and South America.
The Louis Dreyfus Foundation aims to promote sustainable agriculture, food security and self-sufficiency, particularly through education and direct support to farmers, with a specific focus on emerging countries in the above-mentioned regions.

One of the Foundation's goals is to address the challenge facing humanity to double global food production in a sustainable way in order to feed a rapidly growing population.
The Leadership Programme includes:
  • an annual Moral Philosophy Seminar – including moderated discussions and workshops on political philosophy and leadership development;
  • practical skills training in presentation, interviewing, exam and op-ed ('opposite the editorial page') writing techniques;
  • a London Leadership Forum at the end of the academic year;
  • engagement in the Institute for Strategic Dialogue's projects and conferences; and
  • numerous networking opportunities throughout the year.
The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £13,863). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.

The status of the scholarship application process is summarised under Scholarship status on this page.  During the application process, this will be updated from green (open for applications), to yellow (applications closing soon), to red (applications are closed and the selection process is underway) and finally to blue (the selection is complete and successful applicants have been informed).

Decisions are expected to be made around May 2015.  If you have not heard from us by the time this page is updated to say that successful applicants have been notified, then please assume that your application has been unsuccessful.  Due to the volume of applications we receive, we regret that we are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants individually or provide feedback on applications.


The Louis Dreyfus-Weidenfeld Scholarship and Leadership Programme targets future leaders pursuing diverse careers with a focus on improving food security and sustainability. Successful applicants must demonstrate an interest in serving the global community through their chosen field of work, including but not limited to, agriculture, health care, environmental and water management, economic, public and foreign policy.

You should be able to demonstrate a connection between your subject of study and your longer-term career objectives, explaining how you see your professional work contributing to the improvement of public life in your country of origin or at a wider regional or international level. This scholarship seeks to support individuals who, following completion of their supported studies, will go on to actively engage in their chosen fields.
