Eligibility criteria

Imperial College Business School is proud to be a global organisation with students from all over the world. Currently, students from Black or mixed black backgrounds are underrepresented in our student cohort and we're working to improve this. To encourage this further, we are offering scholarships to students from Black or mixed black backgrounds from all regions, who can demonstrate their leadership potential and want to make a positive contribution to the Imperial community.

The Black Future Leader Award is available to applicants demonstrating an outstanding track record of leadership and/or leadership potential. Self-identification of ethnicity from a Black or mixed background (including Black African or Black Caribbean and any other mixed black background) is also a requirement.

Please note: This scholarship is not available to continuing students.
