Visionary Scholarship

This award is worth £5,000 for deserving students who have engaged with us during school/college and have been nominated by a teacher or adviser from their institution.

For many students, applying to university can be a difficult and daunting decision. We work closely with our targeted schools and colleges to support academic attainment and progression to higher education.

Inclusivity, excellence, determination and ambition embody our values, and we understand financial barriers can limit student potential. Thanks to a University of Greenwich alumni, we can offer two cash scholarships worth £5,000.

These are paid in three instalments during the first year.

We invite teachers/advisers within our network to nominate students who have received an offer to study a full-time undergraduate course starting in September 2023.

Two students awarded the Visionary Scholarship in 2020.


Teachers can nominate students who meet the following criteria.

  • They are one of up to two nominations from your institution.
  • The student embodies our university values and has overcome adversity.
  • The student has applied through UCAS using the school or college centre name.
  • They have accepted an offer from us to study a full-time undergraduate course (including extended programmes) at our Greenwich, Avery Hill or Medway Campus (excluding the Medway School of Pharmacy).
  • They have visited the university or engaged in preparatory progression activities offered by the University of Greenwich in school/college.

How to apply

The nominating teacher should complete a nomination form and submit it to us by 00:00 on 22 May 2023.

A committee will review all applications and award scholarships on merit. We aim to make our decision by the end of August.
