About the scholarship (UK and EU students)

The Citizens of Change 100 Scholarship can be awarded to students in receipt of other University of Leicester or other external scholarships.

The scholarship is valued at £2,500 per academic year and will be renewed automatically over the three years of study (a total of £7,500) subject to satisfactory academic progress on the course. In the event that this progress has not been achieved, the University reserves the right to withdraw the scholarship at the end of the relevant academic year. In the event that you transfer from the course, or suspend your period of study, the scholarship will discontinue.

Group entry Ts & Cs

Entrants can apply as individuals or as part of a group up to a maximum of five people.

One member of the group or more must be eligible (an offer holder) in order to submit an application.

Only those members of the group holding an offer by 13 February 2021 are eligible for entrance into the process and consideration for the scholarship.

The University of Leicester reserves the right to make changes to these arrangements, or to withdraw aspects of the scheme or add new elements.
