Due to COVID-19 we may not be able to offer work experience with the scholarship awards this year. This may well change throughout the year and vary from one organisation to another.
A scholarship is a gift which could make an enormous difference to a student’s life.
It is designed to support students who are committed to their studies and develop their skills to reach their full potential. A gift of this nature has a great impact on our students, and for our supporters, the ability to help individuals to realise their full potential is extremely rewarding. These awards are not means tested but are awarded on merit and a whole range of opportunities exist, from financial awards to professional mentoring and work experiences. This enriches the student experience and enables people to go on to enjoy even more rewarding careers. Students can use the money to help purchase equipment or materials linked to their course. Some awards also offer a unique experience such as professional mentoring or additional training to help gain experience and achieve their dreams.
Some benefactors request students to be interviewed and this will take place online. Successful candidates may be required to attend an online scholarship lunch.
