Gordon R. McCulloch Scholarships for MBA Programmes
« on: May 13, 2010, 02:02 PM »
The Gordon R. McCulloch Scholarship is awarded to a student from an African or Latin American country as classified by the UN. The scholarship will be worth £5,000.

Eligibility:
The scholarship is open to applicants who are citizens and residents of African or Latin American countries, as classified by the UN, and who are applying for admission onto the Full-time MBA or MBA in International Business in September 2010.

Applicants who hold full sponsorships or who are entitled to fee omission are not eligible for the scholarship. If an applicant is successful in being awarded the scholarship, but subsequently declines their offer of admission on the MBA programme, the award of the scholarship will be withdrawn and awarded to another applicant.

Criteria:
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and the benefits to the student. The decision will be made by a committee consisting of the Director of the Full-time MBA programme, the Director of the MBA in International Business and the Admissions Officer. If you have already sent your application, you are welcome to apply separately. Please enclose your full name and contact details as stated in your programme application. Separate scholarship applications without these details will not be considered.

Application Procedure:
Applicants should submit a 1000 word essay, explaining why they feel they should be awarded the scholarship, and how the scholarship will benefit them. This essay should accompany their application for the MBA programme and should be sent to:

The University of Edinburgh Business School
7 Bristo Square
Edinburgh
EH8 9AL
UK

Selection Procedure:
The winner of the scholarship will be announced by the University in June 2010. The successful applicants will receive the award in person during the MBA programme Induction week in September 2010. Although applications for the scholarship should be made before 31 May 2010, the scholarship will only be awarded to an applicant who has firmly accepted their offer through payment of the deposit.

The University will also award in 2010-2011 the Calum Miller Scholarship to a student who has been accepted onto the Full-time MBA programme or Full-time International MBA programme, taught in The University of Edinburgh Business School. Candidates should have an excellent academic record and be a citizen or resident of a country (for a minimum of three years) in South America or Africa as defined by the UN. Applicants for the Gordon R. McCulloch Scholarship will automatically be considered for this scholarship which also has a value of £5,000.
