Bursary Scheme Applications

Applications are still open for students wishing to apply for our HE bursary.

We understand that studying at University can be a challenging financial commitment, which is why we offer support that can help individuals achieve their ambitions.

A bursary of up to £2,250 is available for students whose personal and financial circumstances make the progression to higher education difficult.

Alongside the bursary successful applicants will receive ongoing support, mentoring and work placement support to help them achieve their potential.

Applicants must be in their final year of studies at a publicly funded further education e.g. in the last year of Access / A level / BTEC / Scottish Highers course at a UK FE / sixth form college) at the time of applying. Students should also be aiming to start a first-time programme of higher education in the autumn of the year in which they are applying at a UK higher education institution. Students taking a ‘gap’ year will be considered.
