The Scottish Government and Edinburgh Business School’s MBA Scholarship for Women in Zambia

Full MBA tuition fee scholarship

We are delighted to announce our joint gender equality initiative with the Scottish Government, which provides business education scholarships to exceptional women in Zambia. The initiative will provide 10 fully funded online learning places on our Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme commencing in January 2020.

We invite applications from women who are passionate about business, and who will use the knowledge and skills gained from their MBA studies to enhance their careers, support their local communities or even start new businesses. We also hope that our scholars will offer support to other women, by providing guidance and mentorship to females who are still underrepresented at a senior management level across many industries. 

Additionally, we welcome applications from women who otherwise would not be in a position to fund their studies.

The Scholarship winners will be announced on 16 December 2019 and the programme will commence in January 2020.
