In partnership with the University of Bath, The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation (TMBDLF) is offering a new scholarship to Bath students.

The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation and University of Bath ESG Scholarship is part of TMBDLF’s sponsorship of the One Young World Bath 2022 Caucus. It will offer an environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) scholarship to a student or researcher at Bath.

This aligns with the themes of One Young World Bath 2022 - zero poverty, reducing inequalities and climate action. These are based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The scholarship, aimed at individuals interested in the ESG space who are from disadvantaged backgrounds, includes:

  • £500 to £1,000 in funding
  • mentoring and reverse mentoring with leaders in their field
  • work experience (if available and pending COVID-19 restrictions) with leading UK organisations
  • an etiquette programme
  • networking opportunities

Applicants must be studying at Bath on a full-time basis, achieving good grades, and have an active interest in diversity.

Applications close on 30 June 2022 at 17:00 (GMT).

Speaking about the scholarship, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience) at Bath, Professor Cassie Wilson, said:

I am delighted that the University of Bath is working with the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation to offer this scholarship which is a really exciting opportunity for an individual coming to study at the University.

Dr Miranda K. Brawn, Founder, President and CEO of The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation, said:

As we look to expand our national reach across the UK to help even more diverse student leaders, I am pleased that we have partnered with the University of Bath to offer a tailored scholarship for those with an interest in ESG.

TMBDLF’s mission is to eliminate the diversity, equity and inclusion gaps in the professional workplace by educating, empowering and inspiring the next generation of diverse student leaders. The aim is to make a real difference in the lives of our next generation by giving them a ticket to the lottery of life.

The categories of the other TMBDLF’s scholarships include: Finance and Business, Hogan Lovells 'Law', STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), Multi-Sector, Medical, Automotive (for women), Charity, BWOB (Black Women on Boards), LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer etc), Disability and Neurodiversity, and From Care (foster and government care systems).

The winners will be announced at The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Annual Lecture Event 2022 which will take place later this year in the UK. The date and venue will be confirmed in due course. Further details will be shared on the TMBDLF website.
