secret me Bursary


Show me a list of people who changed the world and I will show you a group of people unconstrained by traditional roles

We are proud to introduce a new annual bursary whereby female university students are welcomed to apply to win a bursary place lasting a year.

As part of the bursary successful candidates will get:

-              Quarterly one-on-one sessions with our CEO, Sara Fazlali;

-              Attendance at one Secret Me weekend;

-              Dinner with significant mentors from the Secret Me program;

-              £500 stimulus to apply towards a personal development project or a new/ existing business venture of the successful candidate; and 

-          Introductions to further contacts that are related to the project or business.


Secret Me is dedicated to undaunted personal development and we want to demonstrate this is not restricted to already successful individuals. There is potential to be released at all stages and ages.


We want to help the personal development of brave young women and show that training, mentoring, and a little money can be all it takes to do this. 


To do this we are taking two high potential women and challenging them to propel themselves forward into the areas they hadn’t thought possible. We are giving them the tools to achieve this. The structure of the bursary award is intended to demonstrate that it doesn’t necessarily take deep pockets or lightning strikes to convert this potential into real results. Focus, discipline and bravery rightly applied can achieve great things – who dares wins.

Application Criteria


Female student studying at a UK university over the age of 18.

Complete the form and submit a CV, a covering letter and a reference letter.

The Secret Me weekend will be held at numerous dates throughout 2017, but attendance is conditional to the candidate being free for the appropriate date.

The bursary is valued at £12000 with no cash exchange value and non transferable.

The 2017/8 deadline has now passed and applications are now closed.

Good luck to all who have entered. Successful candidates will be notified by March 20th.
