“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.”

You are a potential Unite Foundation Scholar

First, whether you’re still studying for your A-Levels or have got the results you need: well done on getting this far. We want you to go further.
The Unite Foundation Scholarship Scheme was designed to help young people get to university where money and/or accommodation are an issue.
In particular, the Foundation wants to help students who have come through the care system, do not get any help from their parents (sometimes called ‘estranged from their parents’), or are facing other challenging home circumstances.
A Unite Foundation Scholarship means a free university home for all years of a degree. Every Unite Foundation Scholar also receives an annual allowance of £3,000, rising to £4,000 in London. We also bring you other opportunities through our sponsors, such work placement opportunities, mentoring and university starter packs.
In the 2015/16 academic year there will be almost 50 Scholarships offered by the following universities:
Each university has slightly different criteria, please do get in touch with the student finance team at the your chosen university. They will be able to give you advice on whether you are eligible, and send you an application form.
Best of luck with your application.
Applications are handled by the university, not by the Unite Foundation, so it is important you take the time to understand how their process works.
The university you are applying to will be glad to offer advice and guidance. Click on the name of the university above for the best contact details.
