About The Cumbria Bursary
The Cumbria Bursary is our financial award for first year UK or EU undergraduate students commencing their studies in the 2018/19 academic year. It is a non-repayable bursary designed to support students with a household income of less than £25,000.
In 2018/19 there are up to 90 full or part time Cumbria Bursaries available, worth £1,000 per year of study (full time) or £500 per year of study (part time) for up to 3 years for students entering onto full time or substantive part time* undergraduate programmes.
There are a further 15 Cumbria Bursaries available for students entering onto courses with integrated foundation years; these are worth £1000 per year for up to 4 years.
Up to one third of our Cumbria Bursaries will be allocated specifically to students who are aged 21 and over on the 1 September 2018, who also meet the eligibility criteria outlined below.
*Part time students must be studying at least 50% of the time and registered on a minimum three year course.
How does it work?
Full-time students don't need to apply separately for the Cumbria Bursary. Simply applying for your student funding through your funding body will enable us to assess your eligibility alongside the information you provide on your UCAS application form. However, it is important that you apply for income assessed student finance through your funding body (e.g. Student Finance England) as early as possible. In your application you must give consent to share your financial information with your Higher Education Institution.
Part-time students must complete the application form.
