  • Application details:
  • Rapid Formations provides professional and affordable company formation services to the scores of budding and established business owners in the UK. Our expert knowledge has enabled us to deliver relevant products and consistently high-quality customer service in this increasingly competitive market; so much so, we are now one of the leading company formation specialists in the UK with 5* reviews from our customers. But we want to do even more. This is why we have launched our new Entrepreneur Scholarship Programme to support up-and-coming business leaders with their entrepreneurial endeavours. With an all-time record high of 5.2 million private sector businesses in the UK at the start of 2014 - 99% of which were small to medium sized - we recognise the importance of encouraging and facilitating business innovation and creativity. Our Entrepreneur Scholarship Programme is available to individuals who are currently undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate study in an officially-recognised higher learning institution in the UK. The aim of the award is to assist with the financial costs of study, through which the acquisition and development of skills will potentially culminate in a successful enterprise. 20 scholarships of £500 will be awarded on a competitive basis to candidates who can clearly demonstrate academic excellence and/or entrepreneurial potential. The funding may be used for any purpose related to the advancement of study. Our application process is remarkably straightforward, but we do expect you to make a good case nonetheless. Please provide for us: * A copy of the letter of acceptance from your university or college. * An 800-word essay discussing the way in which our scholarship could help you work toward or develop your entrepreneurial idea (There is no set format for this essay: we simply ask that you explain why you feel you’re deserving of the scholarship, and how you would make use of the additional funding). Applications should be emailed to: funding@rapidformations.co.uk
