Snowdon Trust welcomes applications from qualified candidates for the Snowdon Masters Scholarship award for Students with Physical Disabilities in the United Kingdom for the 2021/2022 school session.
The Snowdon Masters Scholarship program has been structured to identify and accelerate skilled disabled students via higher education, developing the influencers of the future.
It is, therefore, seeking persons with the aptitude to bring about change and influence others. This could entail excellence within a selected area of study, or the skill to display leadership more broadly through the workplace or extracurricular undertakings.
So, if you are living with disability and have an established drive for success, you are recommended to apply. This is due to the fact that Snowdon has a network of Disabled Leaders. It, therefore, offers a space for partnership, engagement and debate. In addition, the Disabled Leaders Network will offer a platform for you to establish relationships with other remarkable disabled leaders. It will also go a long way in establishing a center of information, knowledge and support.
