Scholarship – Outstanding Leadership Award

Acuity Training Scholarship for Outstanding Leadership 2017

Unfortunately we are not running the Scholarship for 2018.

Great leadership is a key life skill for people of all ages. It is particularly important for young people to work on developing their leadership abilities and assertiveness.  To encourage this, Acuity Training has established a yearly scholarship for students demonstrating outstanding leadership ability. This award is open to both undergraduates and postgraduates.

Those wishing to take part in our scholarship program stand a chance of winning a £500 / $1000 fund. Students who wish to apply should create a three to four minute video discussing the merits of leadership and showcasing a situation or situations where they have demonstrated outstanding leadership abilities. They should also explain and the results that their leadership has produced.

The winner of the scholarship will receive £500 / $1,000 (or equivalent) towards higher education.
