Bridge Scholarships

Postgraduate study opens opportunities in many careers that benefit all of society – including science, teaching, medicine and academia. However, far too many of the best and brightest students cannot afford the education they need to progress to these fields.

This scholarship has changed everything for me. A week prior to receiving news of my scholarship I was despondent at having to decline my place due to funding worries. I can't thank the donors enough and I am going to use this opportunity to show an exemplary instance of what a scholarship can do.

It costs around £18,000 to study for a Masters. Even with the new Government postgraduate loans, students still need additional funding of about £8,000 per year.

How Bridge Scholarships help

With your support, we can provide £5,000 Bridge Scholarships for exceptional Masters students. The scholarships make it easier for postgraduates to continue studying and give them more time to progress and excel.

Bridge Scholarships are given to students across sciences, arts and humanities, and social sciences; you can also choose to fund a full award in the faculty of your choice.
