Terms & conditions

Scholarship applications are reviewed by the Henley Business School Scholarship Panel who will base their decisions on a range of factors including academic excellence and the degree to which the student has demonstrated their suitability for an award. Scholarship offers are made as fee reductions/waives. The exact scheduling of those may be obtained from us upon request. Candidates in receipt of a partial tuition fee scholarship from an outside organisation or another University of Reading award (e.g. alumni discount) can combine the scholarships, provided that they do not amount to more than the total cost of tuition. We will not give a University of Reading Scholarship to anyone who already has a full scholarship to pay for their tuition fees. Scholarship offers are being made for the current academic year and will only be confirmed for offer holders who have paid their deposits.

The award itself is an excellent addition to your CV and as an ICMA Centre Scholar you will have the opportunity to participate in events and share your experience with prospective candidates.
