|The Cowrie Scholarship Foundation|
|Scholarship Name||The Cowrie Scholarship Foundation|
The Cowrie Scholarship Foundation was set up to enable economically disadvantaged Black African and Caribbean heritage students to attend UK universities. Here you will find all the information needed in order to apply to the fund for support.
The Foundation was established in 2020 by Professor Richard OC Oreffo, who holds the chair of Musculoskeletal Science and is co-founder of the Centre for Human Development, Stem Cells & Regeneration at the University of Southampton.
Black British students are under-represented at many of our universities. Individuals from affluent areas are five times more likely than those from deprived areas to attend a high-tariff university ranked in the top third by entry requirements. While many issues are at play in why more Black British students do not enter university, the Cowrie Scholarship Foundation seeks to address one part of the jigsaw: the financial cost of university education.
