Cumbria Bursaries – first year undergraduate students

This award is for students starting study in the 2017/18 academic year.

Our own Cumbria Bursary is designed to support students with a household income of less than £25,000. These are non-repayable bursaries that will be allocated after 7 October 2017 (Successful candidates will be notified during October and November).

This academic year we have up to 95 full-time awards available, worth £3000 in total (£1000 per year for a maximum of 3 years), and a further 45 awards for courses with integrated foundation years worth £4000 (£1000 a year for up to 4 years). In addition, we also have up to 20 part-time awards available worth £1500 over the first three years. Under this bursary, students must be studying at least 50% of the time and are registered on a minimum three year award.

All bursaries are subject to specific criteria. Where there are more students who meet the criteria than there are awards, these will be allocated according to the prioritisation criteria. Students outside England may have their award subject to Government guidance and regulations.  Find out if you’re eligible or get further details before applying.

Please note it is important that you apply for income assessed student finance as early as possible and consent to share your financial information with us via your student funding body (i.e. Student Finance England) application.
