The Business School will offer three MBA Diversity Scholarships, each with a value of £5,000, to candidates who enhance the diversity of cultures or perspectives on the Edinburgh MBA. This scholarship is available to both FT and Executive MBA students.

Nationality Criteria: All Countries

Value: £5,000

MBA Diversity Scholarships will be awarded to candidates who, whilst bringing strong academic and work experience credentials, also enhance the diversity of cultures or perspectives on the Edinburgh MBA.


Candidates can only apply for a scholarship once they have received an offer (conditional or unconditional) to join the MBA programme and have either firmly accepted the offer or be intending to do so.

The scholarships will be deducted from tuition fees. Applicants who are fully sponsored by their employer or are in receipt of a full scholarship are not eligible for these scholarships. Applicants can only accept one scholarship from the University of Edinburgh Business School.

If an applicant is successful in being awarded a scholarship, but subsequently declines their offer of admission to the MBA, the scholarship will be withdrawn and awarded to another applicant. An award will be withdrawn if a student fails to meet the conditions set by the University.

Recipients of scholarships will be expected to participate occasionally as ambassadors for the MBA programme and the Business School during and after their programme.

Successful applicants enrolled on the Executive MBA will receive half the amount of the scholarship awarded in each of the two years of the programme.

How to apply

If you wish to be considered for a scholarship you should submit a scholarship application form as soon as possible after receipt of an offer of a place on our MBA.

We will make decisions on a rolling basis beginning at the end of April, based on applications received by each date. Apply early to increase your chances of being considered for an award.

You will be notified of the result of your scholarship application within a month of the deadline. To secure a scholarship, the successful applicant must have paid their programme deposit within two weeks of being offered the scholarship.
