The University currently offers one of the most generous widening participating (WP) led financial support packages within the Russell Group, which is based solely on financial need. In addition, we continue to work with the Division of Development & Alumni Relations to ensure any donor-led MBS undergraduate scholarships are directed to the School’s students who have the greatest financial need but also display additional attributes. For example high achievement through A level (or equivalent) grades or an active involvement in social responsibility which aligns with our own social responsibility objectives.

In 2013, Alliance MBS decided they would like to establish a scholarship scheme that incentivises high-achieving students irrespective of household income; and to align this more closely with social responsibility by ensuring that the recipients of this award are actively involved, or have been actively involved in initiatives that the University are committed to enhancing across all areas of University life.

The winners of the Scholarship winners were Dylan Lall, Cara Muttiah, Alexandra Evans, Narwan Ghani and Melissa Collins. And the International Scholarship winner is Brenda Lye Jee Ching.

Ismail Ertürk, Director of Social Responsibility & Engagement at Alliance MBS had the difficult task of selecting the winners this year.

He said, “All students expressed their commitment and enthusiasm for social responsibility and environmental issues very well. The examples of their experiences and initiatives to engage in activities to improve social and economic conditions of those members of the community who needed social support were conveyed effectively in the short essays.

Although most applicants highlighted their involvement in existing charity work in private and educational settings there were also some who developed their own initiatives and also extended their social responsibility interests to the environmental issues.

It was good to read how in some cases students have learned from their experiences of engaging in socially responsible activities. It was also good to see how the students who participated in the essay competition on social responsibility were looking forward to contributing to the social responsibility activities at Alliance MBS.”
