Mansion House Scholars

The Mansion House Scholarship scheme is one the Marketors have supported for many years. It is a scheme designed to give scholarships in support of overseas students training for work and work experience in the UK's financial services industry. The majority of scholars take Masters' Degrees in financial services or related subjects.
This year the scheme reached its 100th award milestone since it started 12 years ago. Scholars number 100 and 101 are both Brazilian and were awarded their scholarships by Lord Mayor Michael Bear whilst he was leading a business delegation to Brazil. Both award winners will use their scholarships to attend the London School of Economics for post graduate study
On Monday I represented the Company at a Reception to meet the 2010 scholars and some from earlier years. The Chairman of the Trustees Julian Tregoning gave an interesting speech covering the width and value of the scheme and thanking Companies like the Marketors who support it. It is a charity which does nothing but good for individuals on the one hand and benefits the City long term on the other hand. It is one we should be very pleased we support.
