Thanks to a generous gift from the Fidelity UK Foundation, we are delighted to announce the W L “Bill” Byrnes Global Scholarship, a new scholarship of £25,000 for students enrolling on the MSc Investment & Wealth Management programme.

The W L “Bill” Byrnes Global Scholarship honours the memory of Bill Byrnes, who played a significant role in the development of Fidelity as an international investment management business.

Beginning in the 2019-20 academic year, the scholarship will support academically brilliant students who can demonstrate that they have come from a financially disadvantaged background or are from the first generation in their family to attend university.

We are delighted to be able to offer this scholarship, which supports the Business School’s vision of attracting brilliant minds to Imperial, regardless of their background or financial circumstances

The UK is the global centre of finance and Imperial has a long history of training the leaders of this industry. This scholarship offers a precious opportunity to study at one of the best, if not the best, finance departments in Europe, to get both a strong theoretical grounding and an insight into the latest research on corporate, asset pricing and fintech and to mix with an international, dynamic and talented peer group. Scholarships like the W L “Bill” Byrnes Global Scholarship help the Business School to ensure that students from a variety of backgrounds can aspire to become the future leaders of the asset and wealth management industry
