Number of Scholarships

Not more than ten applications from the University will be considered by the Trustees.  The Trustees will make every effort to convey the results of applications by 31 July 2018.  

Further Information

The Trustees will not consider an award to cover expenditure which should have been planned at the outset of the course.  They are more likely to favour applications to cover expenditure arising from unforeseen events and unexpected circumstances or to meet the costs of specific material needs.

How to apply

Only applications made on the application form below will be considered.  This includes a personal statement and financial details. 

The name of a referee is required.  However, a statement from a referee attached to your application would be beneficial. 

A properly completed application will be looked at favourably by the Trustees. 

Applications must be signed by the applicant and countersigned by a member of the Student Financial Support team.  Applications must come through Student Financial Support and should not be sent directly to the Trust by students.  

Completed applications must be returned to the Student Financial Support Team (Advice Centre) by Friday 25 May 2018 at 4pm - applications received after this time will not be eligible for consideration.
