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:
“Science with its retorts would have put me to sleep; it was the opportunity to be ignorant that I improved. It suggested to me that there was something to be seen if one had eyes. It made a believer of me more than before. I believed that the woods were not tenantless, but choke-full of honest spirits as good as myself any day,not an empty chamber, in which chemistry was left to work alone, but an inhabited house,and for a few moments I enjoyed fellowship with them.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Why not draft executive and management brains to prepare and produce the equipment the $21-a-month draftee must use and forget this dollar-a-year tommyrot? Would we send an army into the field under a dollar-a-year General who had to be home Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays?”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
