KPMG has partnered with Queen’s University Belfast to offer financial support and work experience scholarships for students.

The scheme is for those planning to study at the Queen’s Management School over the next four years.

The support, which will start with the 2020 intake, includes an annual living allowance of £3,000, two paid summer internships at KPMG, a laptop and a KPMG business mentor to provide support throughout the duration of their degree course.

To be in with a chance of securing one of the two scholarships on offer for 2020, Northern Ireland students must have a conditional offer of a course at Queen’s Management School, and achieved a very high standard of A-levels or equivalent  or, alternatively, have completed the Pathway Opportunity Programme.

Johnny Hanna, partner in charge of KPMG in Northern Ireland, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the KPMG Scholarship programme in conjuction with Queen’s University Belfast and in particular to be providing support and career opportunities to talented students in Northern Ireland that may need this to reach their full potential.”

Nathalie Trott, director of development and alumni relations, said: “Queen’s University is delighted to partner with KPMG in this innovative scholarship programme for Queen’s Management School. The scholarships offer students an exceptional education experience and provides for career advancement. It is a welcomed commitment to ensuring that those who are most able, have the opportunity to participate in a higher education.”
