Susan Gilchrist Scholarship 2022-23

The Susan Gilchrist Scholarship is awarded to support a domestic King’s Business School student who is facing financial difficulties for their full three years of studying their undergraduate degree.

 

What is the Susan Gilchrist Scholarship?

The Susan Gilchrist Scholarship was established in 2022 by Susan Gilchrist, KBS Advisory Member, alumnus, generous donor, and friend of King’s College London.

In the academic year 2022-23, one scholarship will be available. The value of each award is £83,250 (£27,750 per year, for three years) to support tuition fees, with any residual funds being made available as a bursary, as detailed below.

The winner will be selected on the basis of financial need and a personal statement.
