The Future Generation Scholarship is a new initiative, designed to support talented individuals with an interest in financial services by providing industry insights and financial aid. We hope to ignite the careers of underrepresented and/or disadvantaged groups in banking and develop the next generation of talent. The Future Generation Scholarship is consistent with our core value, Commit to Diversity and Inclusion and demonstrates the intention to attract and develop individuals who reflect the diversity of society.
The Scholarship will be open to candidates who secure the offer of a place to participate in our 2022 Summer Analyst or Industrial Placement Program. Each year, we anticipate circa twenty-five Future Generation Scholars will receive a financial scholarship of £10,000 to support with university fees and/or living costs. In addition, Scholars will participate in a career readiness program including group work-shops, mentoring and one to one sessions, which will compliment both their on-campus curriculum and internship experience.
Applications for the Future Generation Scholarship will open in the summer, in line with applications for all our other campus programs. You can register your interest now and discover more by clicking the “Register Interest” button below. We encourage applications from ethnic minorities and/or socially mobile students and all degree disciplines.
