Charities and Trusts

We have a small amount of money in the Elizabeth Howard Trust Fund that is used to assist full-time female students who need extra support.

There are also national sources of charitable funding such as the Leverhulme Trade Charities Trust who will support fulltime UK students who are studying for their first degree. To be eligible for this funding you must be the child or spouse of a commercial traveller, chemist or grocer. Scholarships are up to £3,000 per year and are aimed at students in financial hardship.

For more information about the Trust please go to the Leverhulme Trust website (external link) - although it is important to note that any applications for this scholarship must be made through the University.

If you are thinking of postgraduate study and attended an Independent school then you may be able to apply for an award through the Schools Competition Act Settlement Trust
