The CISI Educational Trust Awards is open to students studying postgraduate finance programmes, which are accredited by CISI as Centres of Excellence, and seek to acknowledge high standards of work.

Each winning student has been nominated for an outstanding essay, or exam result, identified by their own university, and receives £2,500 from the CISI Educational Trust.

The winning students are also invited to attend the CISI offices in April to receive their award and take part in an interview with the Educational Trust members. They are required to complete a general knowledge quiz, which forms part of the evaluation process alongside the 30 minute interview.

The topics for the interview this year were:

If the structure proposed in Sir Richard Lambert`s paper had been in place 10 years ago, would it have helped avert the banking crisis?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer gave his Budget to Parliament on 19 March 2014. What did you feel were the most interesting points?

At the end of the interview process the attending students can be awarded up to an additional £2,500. This is judged by the CISI Educational Trust interview panel based on performance in the interview and general knowledge quiz.

Laura Kleibl, an MSc Banking & Finance student at Queen Mary University of London said: “I am very thankful that academic efforts are recognised and appreciated outside of university. Especially when being so close to the end of your studies, winning this Award confirms that all the hard word has paid off.”

Matthew Marshall, MSc Finance and Investment student at University of Exeter said: “Winning this Award validates my decision to continue in education and gives me confidence that I have chosen correctly in persisting with my efforts to follow this career.”

Cheuk Kwan Chan, MSc Finance student at Imperial College London, said: “Receiving this Award, especially from a globally prestigious professional body, is very meaningful and I was proud to be nominated to represent Imperial College.”

Clare Gore Langton, Chartered FCSI (Hon) and Chairman of the CISI Educational Trust said: “We congratulate all of our 2014 Scholarship Award winners and wish them every success in their future careers.”
