The MICL Scholarship, worth £9,950 to UK/EU winners, £19,950 to other international students (subsistence, living arrangements and travel are not included) will be awarded to the candidate who can demonstrate the best proposal within the university’s 2010 Innovation theme: Footprint Rethink.

Proposals are invited that will explore how an organisation can improve its carbon footprint and efficiency and, in particular, how these changes can be married to a business’ core operations.

The chosen candidate will be able to pursue their submitted ideas throughout the term of the course and encouraged to turn their ideas into action, actively supported by the City University teaching staff. Proposals can be for creative innovations in marketing communication, design, technology, research and development, process, education, political, health, commercial, financial, or via other ideas that may improve a business’ carbon footprint.

• Proposals are invited with a maximum of 750 words. Essays can be accompanied by illustration, video submissions, and presentations.
