We are pleased to announce Charles’ appointment as Treasurer of this charity and to the Investment Committee. Over the last year he has reorganised the charity’s administration and investments in line with current governance requirements.
This UK registered charity was set up in 1991 to raise scholarship funds to enable less well-off British students to attend HBS as well as to facilitate donations to the School.
The Charity also recently appointed Sir Harpal Kumar to serve as Chair from 1 January 2020. He succeeds Sir Bruno Schroder and Sir Cyril Taylor as the two most recent Chairmen.
Currently about 5 scholarships are awarded annually to enable British students with a financial need to attend this world-leading business school, drawn mainly from those working in the UK public or not-for-profit sectors. The scholarships are awarded in conjunction with the prestigious US-UK Fulbright Commission. All recipients have to commit to returning to the UK at the end of their 2-years MBA studies to use their knowledge to help grow and develop British institutions and businesses.
