The Abbey scholarships are awarded to students from Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Uruguay and Venezuela. Several scholarships are available.


The scholarship is open to applicants who have an excellent academic record and who is a citizen or resident (for a minimum of three years) of either Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Uruguay or Venezuela and who are applying for admission onto the Full-time MBA or MBA in International Business in September 2010. An award may be withdrawn if a student fails to meet the academic standards set by the University.

Although applications for the scholarship should be made before 31 May 2010, the scholarship will only be awarded to an applicant who has firmly accepted their offer through payment of the deposit.

Applicants who hold full sponsorships or who are entitled to fee omission are not eligible for the scholarship.

If an applicant is successful in being awarded the scholarship, but subsequently declines their offer of admission on the MBA programme, the award of the scholarship will be withdrawn and awarded to another applicant.

How to Apply

Applicants should submit a 1,000 word essay, explaining why they feel they should be awarded the scholarship, and how the scholarship will benefit them. This essay should accompany their application for the MBA programme.

The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and the benefits to the student. The decision will be made by a committee consisting of Directors and key staff from Admissions.

If you have already sent your application, you are welcome to apply separately. Please enclose your full name and contact details as stated in your programme application. Separate scholarship applications without these details will not be considered.

Deadline for application: 31 May 2010

The winner of the scholarship will be announced by the University on 1 July 2010. The successful applicants will be invited by the University to attend an award ceremony early on in the programme.
