Applications are now open for the 2024 Masters Compare £5,000 Scholarship! This scholarship provides an exciting opportunity to help you continue your postgraduate studies and start a masters course. 

The Masters Compare Scholarship drawn in 2023 was awarded to Daria. She is a full-time student studying an LLM at The London School of Economics and Political Science. 

The Masters Compare Scholarship can be a life changing experience for the winner. The lucky student that was drawn in 2021 – Marjana – enrolled at Imperial College Business School to study an MSc in Business.

Throughout her course, Marjana shared her experiences as a student with us, from winning the scholarship, studying during lockdown, looking for a job and how she achieved her ideal role in FMCG.

Marjana successfully completed her degree and is starting work as a Key Account Manager at P&G.
