Voluntary sector leaders are being offered two free scholarships on the Cranfield School of Management's two-year executive MBA programme.
The sixth annual round of scholarships, paid for by the school and management consultancy charity the Cranfield Trust, is open to anyone working for a European charitable or voluntary organisation that works in poverty relief, disability or social exclusion.
Amanda Tincknell, chief executive of the Cranfield Trust, said previous scholarship winners had gained substantial career development, increased management confidence and a much broader range of skills.
"We believe these scholarships are contributing to a new generation of third sector leaders, and the skills developed will directly contribute to the success of these managers and their organisations in future," she said.
Applications must be received by 31 October for programmes starting in January 2010.
