 IE Business School and the Laidlaw Foundation Launch MBA Scholarship Fund for Talented Women from Across the Globe

IE Business School, through the IE Foundation, and the Laidlaw Foundation have announced the launch of The Laidlaw Women’s Leadership Fund, which will offer MBA and EMBA scholarships at IE Business School to highly talented women with extraordinary leadership potential from all over the world.

The Laidlaw Women’s Leadership Fund will support up to 24 scholars per year over a three-year period, starting with the September 2024 intake. IE Laidlaw Scholars will receive bespoke programming including networking, mentoring and events to enrich their academic experience.

"It is an honor for IE University to collaborate with the Laidlaw Foundation on this very important mission to support the women business leaders of tomorrow and provide educational and advancement opportunities for those who come from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds," said Professor Gonzalo Garland, Executive Vice President of the IE Foundation at IE University. "Candidates who demonstrate a particular commitment to ethical leadership and to ‘paying it forward’ will be considered for scholarships for IE Business School’s International MBA and Executive MBA programs."

Fuelling women in leadership

The LaidLaw Foundation is a charitable organization that provides scholarships for women in leadership programs at various higher education institutions. The foundation's aim is to propel more women into leadership roles by giving extraordinary women access to exceptional programs and networks.

Laidlaw Women's Leadership Scholarships, thanks to the partnership between LaidLaw Foundation and IE Foundation, are intended to encourage extraordinary women with clear leadership potential to enroll in an MBA program when they would not have previously considered the qualification due to financial constraints.
