Mansion House Scholarship
Amount: Varies (from ￡5,000 (US$9,822) to ￡7,500)
Established by: The scheme was established by Lord Mayor of London Sir Richard Nichols in 1997 to help build links between London — the world’s leading financial center — and other financial centers, as he was struck during his overseas visits by the high regard in which London is held by foreign business communities and by the number of students who wish to study in the UK. Since then, it has awarded 66 scholarships to recipients from 37 countries, including one from Taiwan. The scheme is funded primarily through donations by business and trade groups in the City of London and awards vary in size from ￡5,000 (US$9,822) to ￡7,500.
Open to: Students and young business executives from overseas to travel to the United Kingdom to study or to undertake training or work experience in the Financial Services Sector.
