This year, Bucks will make available 140 individual scholarships of up to £8,000 for students starting year one of their course from September 2014. Recipients will be entitled to a financial support package of £2,000 in their first year of study and £3,000 in each of their subsequent years of study (to a maximum of three years in total). Needless to say, there are a limited number of scholarships available and there are no guarantees of success. Still, check the criteria and, if you qualify, get an application in asap. And hurry! The application process will close on 30 June.
What is the NSP?
The NSP is a scholarship designed to provide a direct benefit to individual students from England and the European Union who come from low income backgrounds and is intended to support the progression of students from groups currently under-represented in higher education. It is part-funded by the Government and part-funded by participating universities.
