Our Bursary Scheme - Support While You Study

This unique offering is open to undergraduates who have lived in Ashford for five years or more. You will also need to be enrolling in a full time course, at Level 4 or above, from each September. This needs to be at a recognised university, technical college or similar establishment. This should last at least twenty weeks on average, in an academic year over the period of the course. 

We will provide a paid work placement that aims to support your studies. This will take place during the summer holidays (typically up to 12 weeks) for three years. We also provide a bursary of up to £3k at the start of each academic year to help with general living costs. 

Information about the placement and conditions of the scheme will be made available once applications open in April of each year.
