“The Unite Foundation Scholarship Scheme has given me the opportunity to attend university and not worry about financial burden. More importantly, it has given me the opportunity to study in a safe environment.”
Unite Foundation Scholar, University of Bristol

You are a potential Unite Foundation Scholar

The Unite Foundation Scholarship Scheme was designed to support young people for whom a year-round home for successful study is key.
In particular, the Foundation supports students who have come through the care system or do not have contact with either of their parents having become estranged for whatever reason.    
A Unite Foundation Scholarship means a rent free university home for three separate years of your degree. We also bring you other opportunities through our sponsors, such work placement opportunities, mentoring or other activities that can help you make the most of your university experience.
