For 2020 entry, if your household income is less than £42,875 a year you may be eligible to apply for a means-tested undergraduate scholarship.
Worth £3,000 a year for three years (paid in cash instalments), our UK undergraduate means tested scholarships are of higher value than the Universitys funding package Leeds Financial Support (funding which is automatically awarded based on a students household income level).
The scholarships are non-repayable and are in addition to the financial support you can receive from the government (ie tuition fee loan or maintenance loan).
Alongside the scholarships, you'll have access to one-to-one support and advice sessions, group workshops, mentoring opportunities, social events and monthly newsletters updating you on relevant activity on and off campus through the Plus Programme.
There are a limited number of scholarships available. We will award the UK undergraduate means-tested scholarships to selected UK students from low income households who also meet the eligibility criteria and are entering Leeds as full-time, level one undergraduates in September 2020.
The scholarships are available thanks to the generous support from alumni and other organisations.
Applications for UK undergraduate means-tested scholarships, 2020 entry, are open until 15 May 2020.
COVID-19 Update: Applications are still open until the above deadline. If youre an applicant but dont know yet whether you will be studying at Leeds in September 2020, we encourage you to still make an application if you fit the eligibility criteria.
If you have applied for 2020 entry, here are the next key dates in the scholarship process:
- Early August 2020 - all provisional, reserve and unsuccessful applicants will be contacted with the outcome of their application.
- 23 October 2020 - deadline for Student Loans Company income assessments to be finalised.
- Late October/early November 2020 first scholarship payment (if all relevant information has been received).
A range of other scholarships are available from the University:
- subject related academic achievement scholarships for UK/ EU students and international students
