Bain London is running a scholarship program for exceptional female
students this summer. The aim is to inspire and equip you with practical
leadership and personal impact skills. A group of top candidates will be
invited to participate in a two-day workshop in our office and early Associate
Consultant interviews, after which the scholarship will be awarded. The purpose
is to encourage women to enter a field where women are traditionally
underrepresented.

 

The True North Workshop will provide a unique insight into our industry
and what a career in consulting could offer you. We will create opportunities
for you to learn and practice a number of key skills, including some of the
tools our teams use to crack critical business problems, as well as tips and
tricks for interviews. Taking part in our True North Workshop is an excellent
opportunity to meet a group of high-potential young women from across the UK
& Ireland and to hear about the impact we have here at Bain. We truly
believe our supportive culture can help you achieve your full potential.

 

Penultimate year female students from any degree or discipline of any
nationality studying at any UK or Irish university are eligible.

 

Submit your application by 11th April 2019 here https://www.bain.com/scholarship?utm_source=email&utm_medium=full-email&utm_campaign=true-north-scholarship-london&utm_content=link.
