Key information

The bursary will be paid in two installments directly to the bank account provided – students must be actively attending University and the recipient event for these payments to be made.

Students must be actively engaged in their studies, with failure to do this resulting in the removal of the bursary.

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

You will be required to provide a brief annual report to update the donor on your studies and how the funding has helped.

How to apply

Please review your application carefully before submitting as duplicate entries will not be considered.

Please remember:

  • Don’t focus on your personal/home life situation, this bursary is meant to help support your time at University and to enhance your experience, to help towards trips, equipment or other items that take your degree to the next level
  • This is not meant as a hardship bursary – if you are having any financial difficulties or struggles please contact the main University Financial Support team
