The Sainsbury Management Fellows scholarship helps young engineers with leadership qualities to combine business and engineering education to improve the performance of the UK economy.
Each year £300,000 worth of MBA scholarships are awarded to 10 young engineers with exceptional qualifications and leadership potential.
The scholarship enables the awardees to add business, finance and marketing expertise to the diverse skills they gained through their engineering training and qualifications.
The scholarship supports engineers to take on high profile positions, providing essential skills for boardroom roles and to start innovative companies. The scheme is also helping to reposition the image of engineering by encouraging young talent to follow this path.
On graduation, each awardee becomes a Sainsbury Management Fellow (SMF) and gains access to an impressive professional network, high level business events, mentoring and career guidance. SMFs themselves also contribute considerably to the career development of young engineers.
