The LGBT+ Scholarship will be awarded to candidates who:

  • Can demonstrate their commitment to the LGBT+ community through previous action and support either within the business setting specifically, or in a wider sense through LGBT+ action.
  • Continue to aspire to make a difference for the LGBT+ community through their future personal and career goals
  • Have sound academic credentials


You can only apply for the scholarship once you have received an offer (conditional or unconditional) to join one of the eligible programmes and have either firmly accepted the offer or be intending to do so. The scholarship selection panel can only consider your application if you hold an active offer throughout your scholarship application process (meaning if your offer is declined at any point up until the scholarship decision deadline you will no longer be eligible). You can apply to the scholarship only once within one recruitment cycle.

  • You are fully sponsored by your employer
  • You are in receipt of a full scholarship
  • You have already accepted a scholarship from the University of Edinburgh Business School

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in being awarded a scholarship, but subsequently declines their offer of admission to the MSc, the scholarship will be withdrawn and awarded to another applicant. An award will be withdrawn if a student fails to meet the conditions set by the University.
