Bursaries for undergraduate university tuition fees 2018/19

To mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, and as a tribute to the young people who gave their lives in this conflict, the council is offering its young residents a bursary to pay for the first years' university fees in relation to their chosen undergraduate course.

Mortar board

The £320,000 bursary fund will support 34 young residents from across the borough, with each individual bursary offering a maximum of £9,250 per student.  

There are a total number of 34 bursaries available which are to be allocated in a fair and even manner across the whole of the Borough. Each individual bursary will be up to a maximum of £9,250 per student. 

For successful applicants the bursary will be paid in instalments to their university during the first year.

To be eligible to apply for a bursary, applicants must:

  • be able to demonstrate 10 years' continuous residency in Hillingdon and be born on or after 1 January 1999.
  • be registered to start and then subsequently commence a UCAS recognised undergraduate course in September 2018 at a University registered and based in Britain.
  • have the support of their school or college, and have the agreement of their parent, carer or guardian, where this applies.
  • provide supporting evidence in order to be verified for their bursary (this will be requested from students who have been successful in being selected for a bursary and will include evidence of commencing their course).
  • provide a written statement of no more than 200 words which is to include evidence of a strong academic record, together with reasons as to why applicants consider they deserve to receive a bursary.

Deadline: Friday 31 August 2018

Next steps

Eligible applications received on or before Friday 31 August will be considered for a bursary by a selection panel comprising the Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services and the Deputy Director for Housing, Environment, Education and Health and Wellbeing.

Those applicants selected for a bursary will be contacted by no later than Saturday 15 September and requested to provide supporting evidence, including an offer from a University for an undergraduate course commencing in September 2018. In the event of a dispute, the decision of the Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services is final.
