About The Scholarship
As a global institution, Bayes Business School aims to foster greater racial diversity in business. It is offering ten scholarships for Black UK-domiciled undergraduate students from lower than average income households. Each scholarship covers the full tuition fee (at home-fee level) and a £6,000 annual stipend for three years. Scholarship holders will also be offered mentoring and support.
Applications have opened on 29 November 2021 and will close on 15 March 2022 for the academic year 2022-2023. Apply under “Application and Process.”
With this program, which will run over 10 years and cost approximately £5 million, Bayes Business School repurposes the gift received from the Portal Trust (formerly the Sir John Cass Foundation) in 2002. This initiative, which aligns with the reparation principle set out as one recommendation in City, University of London’s Review of Historic Funding, supports the School’s commitment to widening participation in higher education.
