Which Cambridge Judge Scholarships Are Right For You?

Cambridge Judge Scholarships

Money can be a compounding stressor when it comes to earning an MBA. Sure, the degree is worth it, but achieving it requires serious planning. With books, housing, and a social life, the bills add up. Luckily, most universities and business schools offer scholarships to make it easier for students to attend.

Take London’s Cambridge Judge Business School, for example. The Financial Times ranked the business school’s MBA program as the fifth best in the world in 2017, and the best overall in the UK. To help join one of the world’s preeminent business institutions, a number of scholarships are available. Some focus on academic achievement, but others are about equity and go toward students of a specific nationality or gender. The institution recognizes that this type of financial assistance is necessary—after all, one year of tuition costs £49,000 (nearly $64,000 USD). That, of course, doesn’t include books or meals.

Those interested in applying for these Cambridge Judge scholarships must do so before the school year officially begins.

The Boustany Foundation Scholarship: The Boustany Foundation Scholarship offers £23,000 in financial assistance, as well as any travel costs. The scholarship is granted once every two years with priority given to Lebanese nationals. However, an applicant must be “outstanding and highly meriting.”

The Culture, Arts and Media Bursary: This scholarship looks at candidates interested in working in media, which can include fields such as journalism, creative writing, or production. The offer caps at £10,000. Once the scholarship is offered, applicants are expected to compete through an essay and give a talk on the media to the class.

The Ruth Whaley Bursary for Women in Science: This is a scholarship specifically for women working in finance. The Ruth Whaley Bursary gives a candidate £10,000—as well as the opportunity to mentor with Ruth Whaley, the founder of New York-based risk management consulting firm Barset Consulting LLC. The goal? That more women take up senior finance positions.

The EY Scholarship for Angolan Residents: This is the only scholarship that covers the business school’s full-tuition. That includes college fees, living expenses, and a flight back home to Angola. Applicants for the EY Scholarship are required to write an essay on how they’d use their time at Cambridge to further sustainable development to Angola.

The Sainsbury Bursary Scheme: Despite what the name suggests, this scholarship is no scheme. It recognizes applicants who have worked in the charity and volunteer sectors, offering them £14,000-28,000. They must show how they’d use their skills to continue this work. UK citizens working in the UK are given priority.

The Maissa Karim Scholarship: This £2,500 award is in honor of the lake Maissa Karim, a member of the school’s 2005 program. Now, that might not sound like much, but the money goes to a candidate who wouldn’t be able to do the MBA program without financial assistance. Every dollar counts.

The St. Catherine’s Benavitch Scholarship: This generous gift offers five candidates £10,000 each. Named after the late Maurice and Natalie Benavitch, the scholarship is supposed to develop tomorrow’s business leaders. Those who receive the award will join St Catherine’s College, a five-minute walk from Cambridge Judge. That means that five lucky candidates will have access to not one, but two university campuses.
