University of Edinburgh MBA scholarships





The University of Edinburgh offers a number of MBA scholarships which attract candidates with strong qualifications, work experience and/or strong leadership skills.


The Postcode Lottery Green Challenge Scholarships (£20,000)
Generous MBA/MSc Scholarships for Applicants with a Compelling Green Business Idea

The University of Edinburgh has linked-up with the Postcode Culture Trust to offer a number of scholarships of up to £20,000 for students wishing to study on our Full-time (12 or 16 month) MBA, MSc in Entrepreneurship & Innovation, MSc Carbon Finance or MSc Carbon Management programme in September 2016. The Scholarships are being offered to encourage strong UK graduates to pursue postgraduate study linked to sustainable business, and particularly those graduates who are entrepreneurially-minded and have a green business idea that they might eventually commercialise.

To be eligible candidates must be permanent residents of the UK, planning to commence study in September 2016, and meet the entry requirements (and ultimately become an offer holder) for one of our nominated MBA or MSC courses. You will also need to complete a short outline proposal for your green business idea, which will be evaluated by a panel from the Postcode Culture Trust.
