Deadline
I applied for the 30% Club scholarship because I do a lot of work in my personal and work life around women and helping empower them in the business space. The premise is always to provide training support to help women achieve their dreams. That’s exactly what this scholarship has done for me. It’s really important in terms of helping and empowering more women to take this step in their personal development and their career development.

If you are offered an Imperial College Business School scholarship and are subsequently offered a larger award by us, the larger one would supersede the first award and would not be in addition to it.

Scholarships awarded by Imperial College Business School are in the form of a reduction of the tuition fee. Therefore, if you receive another scholarship that pays the full tuition fee directly to the College, you cannot also receive a scholarship from the Business School.
