Women in Leadership Scholarship Announced

The University of Kent is launching a brand-new scholarship to help support the next generation of female leaders from India. The Women in Leadership scholarship will give five female students from India a 50% reduction on their course fees – and is available to those looking to study any postgraduate taught course at Kent starting in September 2024.

This scholarship will support the increasing focus on greater representation of women in senior leadership positions in India and will build on the success of our alumni who have excelled in a range of courses including Business, Forensic Science and Computing.

Hear from our current student Varsha:

“The transformative experience provided by the scholarship at the University of Kent has been instrumental in shaping my professional journey. The scholarship has not only offered invaluable support but has also opened doors to numerous opportunities, propelling my growth as a business leader.

Currently immersed in the enriching MBA program, I find inspiration in fostering diversity in leadership. As part of this commitment, I am leading an upcoming MBA Guest Lecture in February along with the MBA colleagues, focusing on the crucial theme of diversity in leadership, especially aiming to inspire women to confidently pursue leadership roles.

Beyond the classroom, my aspirations extend to becoming a consultant in a prestigious business firm and simultaneously venturing into entrepreneurship.

The University of Kent’s scholarship has not only empowered me as a woman in leadership but also provided a platform to inspire others, fostering a community committed to positive change.”
