The aim of the scholarship is to encourage students from outside the world of fintech to explore what it could potentially offer them as a career and enter a short but insightful blog post on what the next generation sees as the future of fintech. 

The industry is facing a very serious talent shortage which is a growing concern across the sector. 

 

 

This scholarship hopes to attract a diverse range of students from across the academic syllabus, who may never before have considered this path as a viable option. 

Data from a wide range of research firms and government agencies, including the Department for Education, suggests the talent shortage is the single biggest concern for senior leaders in the financial services industry.

PwC global fintech report found 42% of both financial services (FS) and Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) organisations are struggling to fill roles.
