Unite Foundation

Every young person should have the opportunity to succeed whatever their background.

Too few young people estranged from family or leaving care realise their potential at university. We want to change that.

Our scholarships award students free purpose-built Unite Students accommodation for three years of study, supporting them to succeed while knowing that they have a place to belong at university. Together with our university partners and supporters, we make sure that our students have opportunities to thrive at university and beyond.
