MBA Ambition Diversity Fellowship

At Barclays, we’re committed to continuing to build a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. We believe that when we make our organization inclusive and equitable, we can make the most of the different backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences of our colleagues and better serve our customers and clients.

One way we demonstrate this commitment is through our Barclays MBA Ambition Diversity Fellowship. Barclays seeks to attract, develop and retain talented and high-achieving individuals from a variety of backgrounds. This Fellowship does not require you to reflect any particular demographic, but rather we are looking for candidates who have a commitment to overcoming inequality and supporting equity.

If selected as a Barclays MBA Ambition Diversity Fellow, you will receive funds to be applied to your full time MBA tuition and academic expenses, contingent upon receiving and accepting a summer internship offer. In addition, MBA Fellows will be eligible for additional funding toward their second full – time MBA year if they choose to rejoin Barclays full-time following graduation.

Application Details

Candidates should submit the MBA Fellowship application in tandem with their Summer Associate internship application, as decisions will be made on an ongoing basis (subject to the status of internship application).


First-year, full- time MBA students pursuing an Investment Banking 2024 Summer Associate position at Barclays are eligible to apply.

You must receive and accept an offer for our 2024 Investment Banking Summer Associate program to be eligible for the MBA Fellowship.


The Banking Summer Associate position is typically available in New York, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Menlo Park, and San Francisco.
