University scholarships, bursaries and discounts

Stoneygate Scholarship

The Stoneygate Award has been made possible thanks to a generous philanthropic donation. The awards are designed to help academically able students who have faced barriers to attending university. There are three awards available.

These scholarships recognise students who have overcome adversity or made sacrifices in pursuit of their goals, ideally in service to something greater than themselves.

Each successful awardee will be awarded an annual £3,000 scholarship per year for a maximum of three years.
