For the academic year 2020-2021, Saïd Business School is offering Linbury Scholarships for UK Students. Up to three financial aid positions will be awarded annually to the value of £60,000 to either MBA or Executive MBA students.
The Linbury Trust is a charitable trust, established by Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover KG (John Sainsbury) and his wife Anya, Lady Sainsbury, CBE, the former ballerina Anya Linden. The name ‘Linbury’ is thus derived from the names Linden and Sainsbury.
The Linbury Scholarships award up to three scholarships annually to the value of £60,000 to either MBA or Executive MBA students.
Applicants to the program must meet the following criteria:
- Open to MBA and Executive MBA (September intake only) candidates.
- The full programme application including the program essay must be submitted by the program deadline.
- Candidates must ordinarily be a resident in the UK (determined via the ‘About You’ section of the programme application form).
- Demonstration of a long-term commitment to the arts, heritage or cultural sector by articulating an intention to work in these fields in the UK post completion of the MBA or EMBA programme.
In addition, a minimum of two years’ experience in an arts, heritage or cultural sector organisation is desirable.
Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University. The requirement for certification may be waived if there is suitable alternative evidence of the candidate having met the required level of English language proficiency.
