Prizes and scholarships

Scholarships have a profound impact both on a student’s university experience and their long-term future. 

For some, the additional financial support enables them to buy essential books or equipment. While for others, it’s as fundamental as paying the rent. However the recipient uses the funds, scholarships and bursaries relieve financial stress and enable students to focus on their studies.

Many of our supporters fund scholarships or prizes in academic fields that relate to their own specific sector. Here’s a small selection.

It's brilliant to have such a great start to life at university. Travelling to placements is expensive so this scholarship will help a huge amount.
