Lloyds Scholars Programme
Fifteen Lloyds Scholarships will be offered to students commencing an undergraduate degree at the University of Edinburgh in the 2013-2014 academic session.
Each scholarship, of up to four years, could be worth a total of £19,000 to the most successful scholars.
In addition scholars will be offered up to two ten week paid internship at Lloyds, one of which must be taken during the summer holiday before their final year, for which they will receive a pro-rated salary of approximately £18,000.
Each scholar will be assigned a mentor from the Lloyds Banking Group business’ senior management and a peer buddy who has gone through the company’s existing graduate scheme to help with CV and interview advice. Scholars will also have the chance to learn valuable transferable skills to help boost their employability through lectures, workshops and events run by Lloyds Banking Group.
Scholars will be required to take on 100 hours a year community volunteering work organised by their University in conjunction with Lloyds.
