The Sainsbury Management Fellowship organisation was established in 1987 by David Sainsbury (now Lord Sainsbury of Turville) to develop UK engineers into industry leaders, thereby raising UK competitiveness in engineering, manufacturing and construction businesses. Lord Sainsbury noted the relative lack of engineering representation of the boards of UK industries, especially compared to corresponding companies from Germany or Japan.
The Sainsbury Management Fellowship assists engineers in obtaining degrees in Business Administration at prominent business schools.
By 2011 the scheme had supported 275 engineers in gaining an MBA. It grants an average of ten scholarships each year.

Famous quotes containing the words fellowship and/or management:
“A Country is not a mere territory; the particular territory is only its foundation. The Country is the idea which rises upon that foundation; it is the sentiment of love, the sense of fellowship which binds together all the sons of that territory.”
—Giuseppe Mazzini (18051872)
“No officer should be required or permitted to take part in the management of political organizations, caucuses, conventions, or election campaigns. Their right to vote and to express their views on public questions, either orally or through the press, is not denied, provided it does not interfere with the discharge of their official duties. No assessment for political purposes on officers or subordinates should be allowed.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
