At Baillie Gifford, we are interested in people who are curious about the world around them. People who combine intellect, insights and a fresh perspective.
If you can prove to us that you have those qualities, this is an opportunity to win £5,000 to travel the world this summer, followed by two weeks in Edinburgh with paid accommodation. To enter, all you have to do is to complete our fun quiz, answer this year’s question, and be prepared to embark on an exciting research project over the summer.
We would like you to consider the following question, in no more than 300 words:
The Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, once said that “change is the only constant in life”. It is happening all around us: industries, societies, environments – the list goes on. Pick an area where you see rapid change and tell us why you’re optimistic about the future.
In the spirit of adventurous inquiry, tell us how you would explore your arguments further if you had £5000 and could spend 4 weeks travelling anywhere in the world.
Be original, creative, and thought provoking. Address an area that is specific enough to draw conclusions.
