Bain's True North Scholarship

Bain's True North Scholarship

We are delighted to invite you to apply for our True North Scholarship for Women.

Bain London’s True North £10,000 Scholarship for Women

Bain London’s True North £10,000 Scholarship for Women

Are you bright, enthusiastic and curious? Do you enjoy solving challenging problems? Are you looking to chart your own course through an extraordinary career?

Everything we do at Bain & Company is guided by True North. True North is an unchanging and true point on a gyro-compass. It is constant, singular and unaffected by factors like magnetic forces or location. For us, True North is our unswerving commitment to always do the right thing by our clients, our people, and our communities. Part of that commitment is to enable women to achieve their full potential at work and in our communities.

Bain London is running a scholarship program for exceptional female students this summer. The aim is to inspire and equip you with practical leadership and personal impact skills. A group of top candidates will be invited to participate in a two-day workshop in our office and early Associate Consultant interviews, after which the scholarship will be awarded. The scholarship winner will receive £10,000 and a Bain mentor! The purpose is to encourage women to enter a field where women are traditionally underrepresented. 

2019 Applications for London are closed. 

What we look for
  • Penultimate year students from any degree, discipline and nationality from a UK or Irish university
  • Strong academic background
  • Great communication skills
  • Drive and passion to solve difficult problems
