We know what it’s like to be a startup; we were one. That’s why we’re excited to launch the new Xero Entrepreneur Scholarship, designed to help UK students afford the rising cost of education and help them along the road to success on their entrepreneurial journey.
We’re offering a £2,000 scholarship, mentoring, subscription to Xero for 12 months and practical financial management skills coaching to an undergraduate or postgraduate student.
So, if you’re a student with an entrepreneurial spark that could benefit from £2,000 towards your studies, or you know one that could, check out the information below:
What does Xero’s entrepreneur scholarship cover?
The £2,000 scholarship can be used to cover any expenses directly associated with a business-related degree. This could be tuition, accommodation or course materials.
If you’re a legal resident of the UK who is currently enrolled (full-time as an undergrad or postgrad student) at a recognised university, we’d love to receive your application. Of course, you’ll need to be majoring in a business-related degree to be considered.
Students of all ages are invited to apply and you can be at any stage of your study. Note that if you’re still at school, you will need to have been accepted into university to be eligible.
You’ll also need an ABB grade or above in A Levels or equivalent alternative qualification.
How can I apply?
You’ll need to submit the following four materials to submissionsUK@xero.com no later than 12 July 2016. Any questions can be sent to this address too.
- An academic transcript
- Proof that you’re enrolled full-time in an accredited university in the UK
- A letter of recommendation from a relevant referee to convince us that you’re a great candidate
- A 500–700 essay on how our scholarship could help you work toward developing your entrepreneurial idea
Check out the official scholarship page for more information, including full terms and conditions and selection criteria.
