New scholarships are merit-based and will cover up to 40% of tuition fees

Loughborough University's School of Business and Economics, an AMBA- and EQUIS-accredited school in England, has recently announced a new scholarship program for admitted students.

With a head nod to the Olympics (which will be held in London this summer,) the new scholarships are broken up into three tiers: a Gold award that will cover 40% of student fee's, a Silver award that will cover 25%, and a Bronze that's good for 10%.

According to a press release, the scholarships will be awarded along the following lines:

"The Gold award is aimed at prospective students with both a 2:1 or above bachelor?s degree and at least five years? managerial experience, whereas the Silver award is aimed at students that meet either of these criteria. Both are awarded on the basis of an original essay. The Bronze award offers a discount to Loughborough University alumni or for delegates from organisations that nominate multiple participants onto the programme."

The scholarships are available to students who have been admitted to either the school's basic full-time MBA program or its specialized International Sports Management MBA.
