Care Leaver and Estranged Bursary 2019-20

Academic year 2020
Amount Up to £1,000 per year

Overview

Care Leaver and Estranged Bursaries of up to £1,000 per year are available for students who are under 25 and have experience of care or are estranged.

What is the Care Leaver and Estranged Bursary?

The College makes available bursaries of up to £1,000 to students who are a care leaver, who have had experience within the care system or who are estranged from their family.

An estranged person is someone who no longer has a relationship or is no longer in contact with their family, and is not supported by them. This might mean biological or adoptive parents or wider family members who have been responsible for supporting the student in the past.

How do I apply?

The bursaries are awarded to undergraduate students who have had their care-experienced or estranged status verified. Students are encouraged to give UCAS and Student Finance England 'consent to share' their financial information with the college. Students will then be contacted by the designated member of staff for care leavers who will work with the student to verify their status.

Further information about ways in which the College supports care leavers can be found here, and more information on support for estranged students can be found here.

Deadline

Application will close on 01 June 2020

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
