Bertarelli Bursary

Applications for this bursary are now closed.


Could you benefit from a bursary?

We know going to university can sometimes be expensive, however a very generous donation has been given by Kirsty and Ernesto Bertarelli, offering bursaries to new Staffordshire University students (subject to eligibility).

This bursary will award £1,500 per year for a three year degree, with no further applications needed during years two and three.

Eligibility Criteria

Prospective students must meet the following criteria in order to be eligible to apply for the one of the bursaries:

  • Be a first year undergraduate only
  • Be a UK home student
  • Be from and currently live within 30 miles of one of our campuses/Centres of Excellence (These campuses are Stoke-on-Trent, Blackheath Lane, Lichfield and Shrewsbury)
  • Have joined the University from Step-up to HE or an Access to HE course
  • Have paid full tuition fees as a full-time on-campus student
  • Have a household income of below £25,000 per annum that is assessed by their award authority, and have given consent for this information to be shared with the University
  • Be studying a non-funded course (i.e. not entitled to receive any government support)

The bursary will be paid in two instalments directly to the provided bank account – Students must be in full attendance for these payments dates.

Students must be actively engaged in their studies, with failure to do this resulting in the bursary being taken away.

Students must also be willing to be involved in University publicity campaigns e.g. social media, web, magazines if required.

An annual report will be required to update the donor on your studies and how the funding has helped.
