x20 Postgraduate Solutions Study Bursaries worth £500 each
We have launched 20 bursaries for 2021 worth £500 each towards postgraduate studies for the upcoming academic year – and every postgraduate student is eligible to apply whatever their subject choice and whether they are studying full time, part time or online. In fact, even students who have already started their PG program with a January 2021 start date, can apply for one of our bursaries before the 30th September deadline and get retrospective funding for the last few months of their course! And, even if a student has secured other funding for their PG program we are happy to top this up with one of our £500 bursaries!
It's really quick and easy to apply for a Postgrad Solutions Study Bursary worth £500, simply complete the Postgrad Solutions Study Bursaries application form on this page, including details of your postgraduate course, and write a 200-word piece about why you should receive one of our £500 bursaries. The whole process will only take few minutes.
In the majority of cases payment of the award will be made direct to your institution and will be discounted from your fees as appropriate. In some circumstances payment can be put towards student living costs and accommodation upon receipt of necessary documentation. You may only apply for a bursary after you have accepted an offer of a place at your chosen institution.
The closing date for all entries is Thursday 30th September 2021.
Q: When will I find out if I have won a bursary?
A: If you are a winner of a bursary we will be in contact with you by 31 October 2021. If you are not a winning recipient of a bursary you will not be contacted separately. Due to the large number of applications we receive this is not feasible for us to do.
Q: Can I write more than 200 words?
A: Please do stick to the word limit but you won't be penalised if you go over or under the word limit within 25 words.
Q: What nationality do you need to be to apply?
A: The bursaries are open to all students of all nationalities.
Q: Do I need to have been accepted on a course to apply?
A: Yes – you need to have secured a place on a PG program.
Q: What if I have been accepted on several courses and not yet made up my mind which one I will go to?
A: Please list all universities that you considering and that you have been accepted on a course at.
Q: Does it matter when my course starts?
A: For our 2021 bursaries you will need to have started your course before the end of January 2022, hence a January 2021 start date, September/October 2021 or January 2022 start date are all acceptable. It is also fine if you are already on a course that will roll over to 2022, for example a PhD or distance learning course.
Q: Are the bursaries awarded for financial or academic reasons?
A: We award bursaries for a variety of reasons. The judges look at the 200-word free text to assess the most compelling arguments.
Q: Does the course have to be full time?
A: No – it can be part time, full time, blended learning or online/distance learning.
Q: What about if I have already secured other funding?
A: We are happy to award our bursaries if you have already received other scholarships and bursaries, and if your tuition fees are covered we will award the £500 bursary towards living costs upon receipt of the necessary documentation.
Q: Is there an age limit for applicants?
A: No – as long as you are over 18 years old and studying a postgraduate program you are eligible to apply.
The very best of luck with your application and your future studies.
