Closing date for entries: 24 October 2017
The winner of the Acorn Scholarship receives a bursary of £2,000. All we ask for is a business plan to demonstrate to the Acorn Scholarship patrons that our winner understands what they need to achieve in their scholarship year in order to advance in their career. This bursary money can be spent on training, equipment or even study tours.
The balance of the prize is allocated against one-to-one personal development sessions with Purple Cubed and the individual mentor(s) assigned to the winner.
Shortlisted finalists will be asked to present their submission to the panel of judges on the 27 November 2017 at The Principal Manchester.
With its clock tower and striking Victorian architecture, The Principal Manchester is an unmistakable landmark in the city’s skyline. A terracotta Grade II listed building, the hotel has a history dating back to 1890, when it first opened as The Refuge Assurance Company headquarters.
The winner and successful claimant of the 2018 Acorn Scholarship bursary will be announced on the same day at a dinner at the popular city-centre hotel.
