The Schmidt-MacArthur Fellowship is an international postgraduate fellowship on the circular economy for design, engineering and business students. Watch the video to see what happened in 2013.
Students are selected from a network of twelve Partner Universities. These are leading international universities, institutions and schools in either or all of the Fellowship’s focus areas: design, engineering and business.
Each year the Fellowship runs a Wild Card competition for one student from anywhere in the world, to win a place on the programme.

The fellowship is jointly funded by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the US based Schmidt Family Foundation.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is an independent charity with the aim of inspiring a generation to re-think, re-design & build a positive future through the vision of a circular economy. The Foundation works across business and education to accelerate this transition.
The Schmidt Family Foundation, established in 2006 by Wendy and Eric Schmidt, brings philanthropic resources to some of this century’s greatest challenges across the globe. Their mission is to apply new knowledge and innovation to problem solving and to advance original research in science, energy and the sustainability of the world’s biosphere.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation aims to document the best circular economy case studies, to inform, inspire and stimulate research.
