Ten scholarships for the School of Management’s full-time MBA course are on offer to people whose careers have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, through redundancy or closure of their own business.

The scholarships are created in memory of Deb Lewis, former MBA Director of Studies who passed away in May 2020, to support people in the region severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

People who live in the ‘Western Gateway’ region of South West England and South Wales are eligible to apply for the scholarships, which cover core tuition fees for the year-long course starting on Monday 19 October 2020. The application deadline is Wednesday 30 September 2020.

“The thinking behind the scholarships is to help people to rebuild their careers and contribute to our local economy,” said Professor Stephen Wyatt, Executive Director (MBA and Post Experience Programmes).

“Deb was an outstanding teacher, colleague and role model. She always looked out for those who needed support and through these awards we want to honour her memory by supporting our local community during the pandemic.”
