We are delighted to announce the 2018 SMF Scholarship awardees, each of whom has received £50,000 towards their MBA study at a leading international business school including Harvard, MIT, Stanford, LBS and INSEAD.
The Sainsbury Management Fellows scholarship is open to professional engineers who are heading towards business leadership roles – in large organisations or as entrepreneurs – and wish to combine business education and engineering skills to take their careers to new heights.
Seven of this year’s 10 scholarship awardees share their thoughts on studying for an MBA, how it will help them fulfil their aspirations to help businesses flourish and make a positive impact on society. They also talk about the benefits of becoming part of the Sainsbury Management Fellowship and their commitment to mentoring young engineers.
SMF works with the Royal Academy of Engineering to select each year’s scholarship awardees. Applications for the 2019 round of awards is open until 29 October 2018. The value of the award recently rose from £30,000 per awardee to £50,000, providing even greater support to successful applicants. Beyond the current deadline, professional engineers who are interested in studying for an MBA at one of the 14 business schools that support the SMF scholarship scheme can register their interest with the SMF Office.
