The Marketing Academy 2020 Scholarship is a free leadership development programme for the best emerging leaders in the Marketing, Advertising, Communications and Media industries in the UK. It’s a highly selective programme that you need to be nominated for before you can apply.

Here’s how it works:

All potential Scholars must first be ‘nominated’ by someone who believes them to be the best and the brightest marketing talent in the UK. Every ‘nominee’ will then receive an ‘Invitation to Apply’ for a 2020 Scholarship by email.

Once the nominee receives the ‘Invitation to Apply’ they must submit a 3 part application: a CV, an endorsement from their employer and a two minute ‘Showcase Me’. Those that get through this initial screening will then embark on a rigorous selection process.

You can download the ‘Scholarship Programme Guide’ here which will tell you all you need to know about The Marketing Academy Scholarship curriculum as well as the selection criteria, process and key dates. We also have a Frequently Asked Questions page here.

Here’s the ideal selection criteria:

  • Between 5 and 15 years in a marketing or agency role
  • Already in a leadership role or significant position of influence
  • Highly ambitious to further career in marketing leadership, aspiring to board roles
  • Demonstrates commitment to career with evidence of results and achievements
  • Interests in charitable, social, cultural, creative or sporting endeavours
  • Evidences commitment to broadening horizons, such as world travel and further education
  • High emotional intelligence
  • Naturally driven to succeed
  • Employed full-time (not freelance) in the UK with no known risk of resignation, redundancy or termination

We also have Scholarships available for individuals who don’t have a ‘classic’ marketing background. So if you know someone with amazing entrepreneurial ability, or who has demonstrated exceptional potential as a natural marketer you can nominate them too.

You have until the 17th February 2020 to nominate the best marketing talent you know.

Fill in the Nomination Form below to give someone the chance to take part in this unique and powerful development programme (please note: we will never use, sell or share your data)

Remember, nominations close 17th February 2020 and the Application deadline is 24th February 2020.  The sooner you nominate the longer your nominee has to complete the application.
