When you invest in us, you invest in the world
Green Templeton College is one of the most intellectually exciting places in one of the great universities of the world with an academic focus on understanding and improving human welfare issues on a global scale through world-class research with a real-world impact.
Bringing together scholarship and professional practice in medicine, health, business, management and applied social sciences, the College is helping to set a new Oxford standard in post graduate education.
To find out more about GTC's human welfare research focus and areas to support, watch our specially-commissioned short film.
We have ambitious plans for development over the next ten years and we invite our alumni and friends to join us in helping to raise support for a number of projects designed to realise this vision in the following areas.
We offer opportunities to exceptional students, who can really benefit from studying at GTC and who give back to the College in return, on a needs-blind basis. Many of them will become leaders in their fields, whose research or work has the potential to have an enormous impact on society.
The MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) and Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford are working together to establish a permanent international scholarship in medical sciences in honour of Professor Sir David Weatherall. Sir David (an Honorary Fellow of GTC) founded the WIMM in 1989 and was the Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford from 1992 to 2000. The WIMM has recently established a comprehensive, fully integrated student programme, which is open to young scientists from all corners of the world and aims to attract the very best young graduates. These students train in one of the world's leading molecular medicine institutes (WIMM) and are hosted within Oxford's premier college for the development of education in medicine (GTC).

Research and academic initiatives
The College is home to a number of academic initiatives which are contributing to crucial debates around human welfare issues and helping to tackle 21st century problems of health, ageing, education, the environment, governance, food and security around the world. Our initiatives include The Emerging Markets Symposium, The Future of Work Programme, The Oxford Health Experiences Institute (HEXI), the Oxford Maternal & Perinatal Health Institute (OMPHI), Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, and The Global Health Policy Programme.
Plans to enhance and improve the College estate include establishing an Advanced Studies Centre as an academic hub where Fellows can pursue their research work on-site in the historic setting of the Observer's House; vital conservation and refurbishment work on the 18th century Grade II listed Radcliffe Observatory, and accommodation and facilities of the highest standard for students including a proposed new gym building.
A strong endowment provides financial security and has a profound impact on what the College can achieve. Supporting the endowment will safeguard Fellowships in key areas of need and help the College to focus on real world issues for generations to come.
