Further details

The Universities at Medway have been awarded a further significant donation to the Medway Student Support Fund. This donation will provide bursaries to home students from Canterbury Christ Church University, University of Greenwich and the University of Kent each year. This is an opportunity to apply for additional funding and the selected recipients will receive a bursary of up to £500-£2000.

Candidates will be considered on the basis of their fulfilment of the eligibility criteria and a 350-500 word statement demonstrating their need and how they will use the bursary.

All applications will be considered based on the statement and evidence provided. Applications will then be shortlisted and considered by the main panel.

Successful applicants will be able to hold academic related scholarships (including those for music and sport) whilst in receipt of the Medway Student Support Fund. The Medway Student Support Fund will be given conditional on the successful applicant signing a Bursary Agreement setting out the conditions of the bursary award.

Please note: There will be no funding during a placement year.
