Scholarships at Edge Hill University
|Excellence Scholarships for Prospective Students|
|Scholarship Name||Excellence Scholarships for Prospective Students|
|Scholarship amount||Uup to £2,000|
|Scholarship Deadline||1 June 2020|
If you have applied through UCAS to study a full-time undergraduate programme or PGCE at Edge Hill University and firmly accepted an offer of a place for 2020 entry, you could make a difference to your student life and finances by applying for an Excellence Scholarship worth up to £2,000.
Excellence Scholarships have nothing to do with your financial situation, degree subject or academic achievement. If you are proud of something you have done and can demonstrate determination, commitment and achievement outside of your studies at school or college, then we want to hear from you.
You may excel in disciplines similar to the following examples or be able to demonstrate excellence in an alternative area of expertise.
The above examples are potential areas of excellence based on previous applications but this is not intended to be a comprehensive list. If your expertise or achievement is not covered by our suggestions, don’t be put off! We encourage you to put forward an application for consideration.
Please note, if you can demonstrate dedication, talent and achievement in sports performance, coaching or officiating, you should apply for a Sports Scholarship.
To be eligible to apply for an Excellence Scholarship, you must have applied to study a full-time undergraduate degree (BA/BSc/LLB), full-time integrated Masters degree (MComp/MNSW/MSci), full-time foundation degree (FdA/FdSc) or full-time PGCE at Edge Hill University and have firmly accepted an offer of a place to study with us.
If you are awarded an Excellence Scholarship but subsequently defer your offer of a place to study with us, you will no longer be eligible to receive the Excellence Scholarship, though you are welcome to re-apply for an Excellence Scholarship in the following application cycle before you join your course. Please bear in mind, however, that there is a competitive application process so a successful outcome to your second application cannot be guaranteed.
Direct entrants to Year 2 or later of undergraduate programmes, as well as permanent employees of Edge Hill University, are not eligible for an Excellence Scholarship.
A successful application for an Excellence Scholarship will make you ineligible to receive a Sports Scholarship. You are welcome to apply for the two awards, however, and if both applications are successful you will be able to choose which scholarship you would prefer to receive.
