New 50% scholarships announced

Did you know that the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre has been supporting entrepreneurs to develop successful businesses for over twenty years?

To further support students in their entrepreneurial journey we are proud to announce three 50% scholarships to students for the fully online, part-time Postgraduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship.

This course provides another way to bring your business ideas to life, with support from the University of Manchester's team of leading entrepreneurial minds.

Introducing our three scholarships

Diversity Scholarship

Africa and Latin America are two of the most enterprising regions in the world with small/medium businesses making a large contribution to the regions’ economies.

We would like to support a candidate to gain the knowledge and tools to:

  • investigate or develop a business idea, or
  • to cultivate a more entrepreneurial mindset to bring innovative ideas while working in a more established corporation.

This scholarship is also open to people displaced from conflict zones trying to establish themselves in new locations, who have an interest in learning about entrepreneurship.

Women Making a Difference

Are you a woman with a commitment to make a difference in the world?

For example, are you a woman:

  • involved in social responsibility initiatives in your organisation or community?
  • making a difference working in a not-for-profit organisation?
  • making a difference through creativity and entrepreneurial initiatives?
  • involved in sustainability and conservation initiatives?
  • inspired to make an impact in the world?

Start-up/Innovation Scholarship

Do you a have an idea for a start-up but need some structure, knowledge and tools to focus your entrepreneurial spirit and bring your idea to life? Tell us about it and gain a chance to win a scholarship and learn how to move forward with your idea.
