Cranfield University Trust MBA Scholarships for the Voluntary Sector

The Scholarship is provided by Cranfield School of Management and The Cranfield Trust.


In 1988, Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, challenged Cranfield University to put it's skills to use in supporting the voluntary sector, and as a result, the Cranfield Trust was created. The Cranfield Trust now offers free management and technical consultancy to other charities, using volunteers, many of whom are students or alumni of the university.

The selection criteria for the scholarship will be based on the following:

  • The strength of the application and the accompanying essay.
  • The candidate's potential to become a leader within the voluntary sector as a result of the 'Cranfield Experience'.
  • The candidate's likely contribution to the voluntary sector in the future.

It is anticipated that successful candidates will also contribute to the work of The Cranfield Trust during the course and in the future.

Once offered a place on the MBA course, short-listed candidates will be invited for a second panel interview with the Executive MBA Course Director and a representative from The Cranfield Trust*. These interviews are likely to take place in mid-December.
