|Scholarship Name||Partnership Progression Scholarship - first year undergraduate students from partner colleges (2019/20)|
|Scholarship Deadline||4 October 2019|
If you are a student of any of the following colleges, you might be eligible for one of our Partnership Progression Scholarships offered to those applying to the University immediately after Further Education:
We have up to 35 Progression Scholarships for students starting study in the 2019/20 academic year.
The awards are worth £500 in total; these non-repayable grants are paid directly to your bank account in the first year only. The Progression Scholarship can be received alongside the Cumbria Bursary if a recipient is eligible and ranked to receive both awards.
You do not need to apply separately for the Progression Scholarship, 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.
If you're eligible, be sure to complete your funding application before 4th October 2019.
Please note: We only contact successful candidates. If successful, you will be notified in writing during October or November. Letters are sent via the Student Loans Company; these will be forwarded to the correspondence address given on your Student Finance application and can also be accessed online via your student finance account.
Where there are more students who meet the criteria than there are awards available, these are allocated according to the following prioritisation criteria:
*as confirmed via the Student Finance application process or direct to the University as part of the online registration process
**subject to receipt of satisfactory evidence e.g. GP letter or Educational Psychologist Assessment. We check our Disability team have received this from you.
If I am unsuccessful can I appeal?
There are a limited number of Cumbria Bursary awards available, allocated at the beginning of the first year of an eligible three or four year degree course. Often students meet the criteria for the Cumbria Bursary award; however, there are usually more eligible students than awards available.
Students are scored against the eligibility and prioritisation criteria to determine who receives an award. If you did not receive an award in year one of your course, you are not eligible to receive an award in year two. The decision on granting Cumbria Bursary Awards made by the panel is final; unfortunately, we cannot accept any appeals on this basis.
