Funding available for BPIF Masters

The Stationers’ Foundation and The Printing Charity have partnered to provide funding to individuals looking to complete the BPIF (British Printing Industries Federation) MSc in Management.

The £6,000 Postgraduate Bursary Scheme is either available to a single student or to be shared between several students who would benefit from the funding.

Charitable funding to education programmes is a large part of The Stationers’ Company’s work to encourage people into the print, publishing and online media industries. 

Working with its industry partners, the organisation offers up to 15 bursaries a year, as well as mentoring to students on specific courses that support entry to and progression within these sectors.

Having begun with a focus on the welfare of those in the print industry, The Printing Charity has since grown and evolved to support education and training with its education funding supporting almost 500 people a year.

This is about enabling the great people in our industry to reach their full potential, and the MSc helps us to do just that

The BPIF MSc is run in partnership with the Management Development Centre (MDC) and is designed for those in print with at least five years’ experience in a management role. Successful recipients of the funding will also have the opportunity to be mentored by an appropriate Stationers’ Company member.

“The BPIF is delighted about this continued funding opportunity in collaboration with the Stationers’ Company and The Printing Charity,” says Ursula Daly, BPIF Programme Director.

“This is about enabling the great people in our industry to reach their full potential, and the MSc helps us to do just that. It’s a stimulating course which encourages a whole new way of thinking for those already in management positions, while building on skills already learned in their careers.

“I’d encourage anyone thinking of doing the course to apply for the bursary if finance is in any way a barrier.”

The funding is available for the academic year starting in October 2019 and the deadline for applications is Thursday, May 23rd, 2019.
