The Aziz Foundation Scholarship at Imperial College Business School

The Aziz Foundation is pleased to announce that it is offering an MBA Scholarship at Imperial College Business School for the 2021-22 academic year.

Tackling the global challenges of the future, such as climate change, emerging infectious diseases and the opportunities of the data revolution, will require a truly diverse, creative approach. For Imperial to be at the forefront of this effort, we will need to draw upon the talents of staff and students who come here from a diverse set of backgrounds.

Through a partnership between Imperial College Business School and the Aziz Foundation, we aim to offer a significant scholarship to an outstanding MBA student who wishes to lead in an organisation that is tackling the big challenges of the future.

The scholarship offers a unique opportunity for an exceptional Muslim student active in British Muslim communities and keen to build bridges with all parts of British society. The student will have the commitment and intelligence to support and represent Muslim communities in wider society, as well as the credibility to bring and explain new learning experiences back to the community, and will thus create mutual understanding between Muslims and others and contribute to the creation of a more cohesive society.

The scholarship will cover the full MBA tuition fee.
