Henley Offers Scholarship to Women

Henley Business School has launched a scholarship with the collaboration of the 30% Club and the Financial Times aimed at offering women a fully-funded Henley MBA education, according to a recent press release. The scholarship is designed to give practical support to women interested in entering the business world, allowing students to complete their degrees on either a full time, executive or flex-executive schedule, allowing for women to continue working while they complete their degree. The scholarship should also help the 30% Club’s goal of seeing more women at every level of businesses and their boards.

Those wishing to enter the competition for the scholarship must complete three tasks. The first is an 800-word essay responding to the prompt “Can you be a real woman or do women have to disguise themselves to succeed in the workplace?” The second is a 40-second video demonstrating how they would react in this scenario: “You are stuck in a lift with the head of your organisation and they ask ‘What can I do to help you succeed here?” Finally, participants must create five tweets giving their best tips to women entering the workforce in September. Judges will select 10 finalists from all entrants, who will be invited to an official event at the Financial Times where the winner will be announced.

Nadia Nagamootoo, last year’s winner of the scholarship, felt that her experience at Henley not only bettered her on an academic level but as a person as well. “As well as intellectual development and building a broader network the scholarship helped discover what the balance between work and home meant,” she said in a press release from the school.
