Thank you for entering the Vanessa Cotton Scholarship.
MPI UK &I are delighted to announce the 6th annual MPI Vanessa Cotton Scholarship, created in honour of UK event industry veteran Vanessa Cotton. The scholarship was created to recognise the industry’s brightest and most ambitious students, graduating from event management degrees and supporting their first step in to the meetings and events sector.

The MPI Vanessa Cotton Scholarship, which is kindly sponsored by Reed Travel Exhibitions will award at least one student a one month paid internship with the company in the summer of 2018.

This is an incredible opportunity to work with one of the world's leading exhibition organisers and a hugely valuable experience and addition to your cv.
