Scholarship Application Guidelines

Application Checklist

Please ensure that you include ALL of the following supporting documents with your application, as these are mandatory. An application received without any of these documents will be rejected.

Course offer email from the Admissions Office.
Your Stuart Wigham Scholarship application form completed in English.
Reference letter – academic or professional.

You are also welcome to include one additional document, which is optional. This can be a second reference, or a CV.

N.B – We will accept supporting documents that arrive at the EODF independently from an application, however we must receive these before the deadline in order for them to be considered part of your application. Where supporting documents are being sent separately, please ensure that your full name and any EODF reference number you have been given is included so that we can match these easily to your application.

Please DO NOT include: ID cards, copies of passports, bank statements, original documents, photographs, any irrelevant certificates or awards – we do not consider these as part of your application and cannot guarantee their return.

Completing the Application Form

Please read this step by step guide carefully, and ensure you fill out all the relevant sections as indicated.

Course Applied for

Please put the full name of your course here, not the course code.

Intended Start date

This will usually be either September or January.

Method of study

This will either be full or part-time.

For tuition fee purposes, are you classified as a Home or Overseas student?

Home students are those from the United Kingdom and the European Union. You are an overseas student if you are not from the UK or EU.

Personal Details

Please ensure you fill this information out fully, where applicable, and use a contact number and email address that is active and that you have regular access to.

Academic qualifications

You will need to include all your relevant academic qualifications in this section. Please make it clear in which country your study took place, what level of study you undertook (e.g. A level, undergraduate degree, masters degree) and your overall grade average.

Professional Experience

You can write about any work experience, paid or voluntary, that you feel you would like to include. This is not mandatory, however.

Other Personal, Professional, and/or Academic Achievements

This is a chance for you to list any achievements you feel are relevant to your application. This section is optional.

Personal Statement

This a chance to talk about yourself, your experience – professional or academic- to date, any extra-curricular activities you are involved in that relate to your chosen course, and why you are interested and want to pursue the course. This should be no more than 500 words.

Career Aspirations/ Development Plan

In this section you will need to talk about what you hope to achieve following your course. What are your ambitions, career aspirations, and how do you expect to achieve them? Make sure your plans are feasible and realistic.

Again, this should be no more than 500 words.

Financial Need

This should be a short statement, usually about two or three paragraphs, that explains why you would benefit from being awarded a scholarship. You will also need to explain how you intend to cover the remaining funds and/or living maintenance.

N.B – Please note that the number of scholarship applications we receive often exceed the awards we have to offer. This means our scholarship application process is highly competitive and that the criteria are firm. Do not assume that an application means an award. We advise that students research other sources of funding in the event that your application is not successful.

Submitting Your Application Form

Once you have filled in all the sections, please press the submit button at the bottom of the form. This will send your application to us.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept applications via post or fax at this time.

Once your application arrives, we will mark this on our system and you will receive a confirmation email from us.

What our members say 

“Stuart focused on helping me unpick a complicated web of theory, models and opposing points of view. He helped me enter the context in a relevant way and organise things in a way that first explains the outcome of what felt like a HUGE jigsaw, then deconstruct it and build it back up again, piece by piece. He taught me to remain ever curious. Sadly, Stu is no longer with us, but his legacy lives on in everything I do and in the wider EODF community”

Chris, UK (mentee)

“For me mentoring is much more than transferring my knowledge, it actually helps ME in many ways. Through the conversations I can connect to new people (which I love!), and get exposure to other companies and fresh perspectives – sometimes even amazing how people new to the field can bring freshness and new thinking. This helps challenge me why I work and think in a certain way. I love this chance to connect and two way learning!

Hajni, The Netherlands (mentor)

“Seriously, Mark was amazing at challenging my thinking and also introduced me to some new approaches, different consultancy styles, and insight into a larger portfolio of large group interventions to support me further as a ‘Process Consultant’. Marks curious style of inquiry was really useful as it helped me to self-reflect, my practice and my thinking…
offering alternatives and learning from his extensive experiences…”
