Oracle – 1Mby1M Scholarship Application

What do you call someone who would like to become an entrepreneur –
but within the safety of being an Oracle employee?


An Oracle Intrapreneur!


This is your opportunity to:
1) Take your career to the next level
2) Learn and grow professionally
3) Develop advanced business skills of intrapreneurs


We want you to become an intrapreneur, but it’s not an easy task. It’s actually a lot of work. With support from Oracle and guidance from the 1Mby1M program, you could develop the right skills to be an entrepreneur.

You can win a scholarship for a year’s worth of training in the 1Mby1M virtual accelerator to teach you how to be a true entrepreneur. To win, you need to apply. The process of applying is the first step in developing your skill as an innovator at Oracle. We’re looking for individuals and teams with the passion to be better, to be innovators, who are interested in developing useful and promising concepts that can be turned great Oracle products.

Scholarships are only open to employees of Oracle. And to get in the game, you need to apply. Applicants need to complete and submit an application by Tuesday, April 16, 2019.


Format: Submit your application essay as a Word document or PDF. No PowerPoints and plain emails. Submit a professional looking document. (Ask yourself: would my college professor approve? Your essay and the way it looks speaks volumes about you.)

Your application should be in the form of a minimum 500 word, college-style essay. This essay must articulate your desire to develop your business acumen. Give us a sense of where you will focus your yet-to-be determined idea (please do not articulate any exact ideas as those need to be vetted in the program itself). You need to be resilient — we need to hear that in your essay. Demonstrate your understanding of the One Million by One Million program benefits. Help us understand why you feel it will make you a better Oracle employee. We want applicants who want to create and execute their to-be-determined product ideas for Oracle using the knowledge gained from the One Million by One Million program. Most of all, we need to hear your commitment to using the One Million by One Million methodologies to ultimately develop a product idea for Oracle.

2) Domain Expertise/Area of Passion

  1. Why do you want to learn to be an entrepreneur? What is your understanding of the 1Mby1M program? What do you expect to get out of it?
  2. How many roundtables have you attended? What have you experienced during those that compels you to apply for this scholarship?
