Care Leavers Bursary
Scholarship Name Care Leavers Bursary
Academic Year 2020
Nationality Any

In addition to the Loughborough University Bursary (formerly the Loughborough Scholarship Programme), further cash bursaries and tuition fee waivers are available to UK/EU students who are care leavers. Please note this is not available to students from Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

Please note that the total value of the Care Leaver Bursary differs for students starting in 2020 and 2021 following recent alterations. Please ensure that you are referring to the appropriate information.

Loughborough welcomes students who are leaving care to study at the University. We believe anyone with the potential to study at university should have the opportunity to do so, and we provide a range of support for care leavers as a result. This includes an enhanced Loughborough University Bursary (known as the Loughborough Scholarship Programme for students starting their course in 2020)

Care leavers are usually considered as independent students for the purpose of student finance, and are often therefore eligible for the highest levels of financial support. In terms of the Loughborough University Bursary / Loughborough Scholarship Programme, care leavers are entitled to an enhanced package of support.

This includes an additional bursary and tuition fee waiver in each year of a standard three-year degree course, plus additional support for students undertaking a Foundation course (except Art and Design Foundation Studies) or an integrated Master's course.
