This year there will be one scholarship available for one of our masters programmes within the faculty for students studying on a part-time basis, starting in September 2020. The 30% club scholarships aim to advance female leadership and increase diversity in organisations. 

This scholarship will cover the full cost of a master's programme and will be awarded on a competitive basis. The scholarship is awarded in conjunction with the 30% Club. Globally, the 30% Club is establishing partnerships with Universities to rectify the under-representation of women at senior levels in organisations, particularly apparent in the STEM sector. One of the mechanisms being employed to achieve this is by supporting women to undertake postgraduate technology courses.
