GMBA bursaries

Bursaries available for January 2022 entry

Imperial Loyalty Bursary

Amount
The bursary is a 10% reduction in the total fees
Eligibility

Your Imperial degree opened doors after graduation. Now, find out how an MBA can help open new opportunities to accelerate or pivot your career, with a reduction in fees for the Global Online MBA. This bursary is available to candidates who have previously been awarded an undergraduate degree or a postgraduate Master’s degree by Imperial College London.

How to apply

Eligible candidates who receive an offer for the Global Online MBA programme will automatically receive the bursary as a reduction to their tuition fees.

We review applications throughout the year. Candidates who submit a complete application by the final admissions round deadline will be notified by the corresponding decision date if they are successful.

Requirements
  • Available to candidates who have previously been awarded an undergraduate degree or a postgraduate Master’s degree by Imperial College London
Deadline
Please submit your application by the final admissions round deadline to be considered.

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.

Receiving the LGBTQ+ scholarship has been the highlight of my MBA. Representation from the LGBTQ+ community in business is still very limited and the ‘White Collar Boys’ Club’ mentality still applies in many cultures. Being the driver for change, representing minority groups, and running diversity initiatives to shape the next generation of global leaders is a unique experience. If you want to make a difference in tomorrow’s business and become an LGBTQ+ role model for future cohorts, this scholarship is the right move for you.
