Partnership Progression Scholarship - first year undergraduate students from partner colleges

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: 

  • Blackburn College   
  • Bury College 
  • Carlisle College 
  • Doncaster College 
  • Furness College 
  • Kendal College 
  • Lakes College West Cumbria 
  • Lancaster and Morecambe College 
  • Newton Rigg (Askham Bryan) College 
  • Northumberland College 
  • Southport College 

We have a fixed number of Progression Scholarships for students starting study in the 2021/22 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 2nd October 2021. 

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. 

Eligibility Criteria

  • Progressed to the University of Cumbria from one of the designated Further Education Partner Colleges. 
  • Entering into year 1 or integrated foundation year of a specified undergraduate degree at the University of Cumbria

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
