Here at Pearson Business School creating opportunities for students is something we pride ourselves on - and this starts before students actually start studying with us. Below you’ll find a range of the industry-aligned scholarships that we offer, along with the winners for the 2018 academic year.

Each of these winners were shortlisted by our academic team based on their Professional Workshop and had to submit a 500 word blog related to their shortlisted category. The blogs were read by ed-tech start-up company ‘The Access Platform’ (the company within our Business Incubator scheme) and the winners were selected based on their use of innovation, entrepreneurship, industry engagement and bringing accounting and finance to life for young people.

Scholarship for Innovation:
This scholarship was launched to showcase how supportive we are about all our students and their futures. Technology is a key enabler, creating opportunities for more affordable, accessible, flexible and effective learning. Our students are the focus and fuel for everything we do. They inspire the innovation and creativity that is at the heart of what we teach today and how we will teach tomorrow.

2018 winner: Zoe Moss
"I can honestly say I didn't expect to win that scholarship. As I've gotten older I have come to accept that I don't get chosen for things like this, I enter and apply but things never seemed to go my way; I try anyway. I have never given up hope on what I saw to be a slim possibility because, no matter how small, there is still a chance. I was thrilled when I learned of my scholarship because, to me, that was the world telling me not to ever give up on what I want. I thank Pearson College for this amazing opportunity and I'm really looking forward to studying with them."
Zoe will be starting our LLB course this September.

Scholarship for Industry Engagement:
Our commitment to academia and industry is most prevalent in our course delivery. Our students don’t just learn about their area of study, they gain experience from and get access to, the best of the best in their chosen business world in the classroom and in our partner companies – it’s the only way to learn. This is why the Scholarship for Industry Engagement is so important to us.

2018 winner: Evamarie Bello
“At first, I was hesitant about applying for the scholarship thinking I wasn’t going to win. But with the constant push from those around me and the voice in my head, I gave in and gave it a shot. Applying for the scholarship is something I will always be thankful for and gave me this much needed mindset to never ignore these kinds of chances. I’ve felt like the student loan burden has been lifted off of me and I haven’t even started university yet!”
