The scheme provides bursaries to students from the West Midlands to help them make the most of their studies at Cambridge University. The fund for the scheme arises out of our historical association with the West Midlands Examinations Board.
The scheme gives students bursaries of £3,000 per annum for the lifetime of their undergraduate studies. Bursaries will be awarded to up to approximately ten students. Applicants may choose whether the bursary is used for living costs or tuition fees or for a combination of both.
Applications for the bursary scheme for 2018/19 are now closed. Applicants will be notified of the final decision in August 2018 when places at Cambridge University have been confirmed.
Applications for the scheme in 2019/20 will open in Spring 2019.
