If you are offered an Imperial College Business School scholarship or Imperial Loyalty Bursary 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.

"I received the Imperial College Business Scholarship Award. The benefits of this are many, first the internal joy and feeling of honour is amazing. It is also a motivating factor for me, as any time I remember that I was selected among a pool of many applicants, I am driven to give my very best on the programme and in the Imperial community more generally. My advice to future scholarship applicants is to not underestimate yourself, apply for as many scholarships as you feel suited for, both from Imperial and outside."
