Leverhulme scholarships

The Leverhulme Trade Charities Trustees are offering bursaries to postgraduate and undergraduate students at UK higher education institutions.

To be eligible to apply you must be a UK (not international or EU) student who is the child or spouses of:

  • Commercial travellers

  • Chemists

  • Grocers

Funds are intended for those in financial hardship, eg requiring funds for maintenance, tuition and examination fees, travel costs, study materials or accommodation etc.

Applicants must provide justification for their reasons for applying.

The maximum value of any bursary is £3,000 per annum for undergraduates and £5,000 per annum for postgraduates. The sum awarded will be adjusted according to individual circumstances, needs and the funds available.

Bursaries will generally be awarded for the balance or whole duration of an undergraduate course but not backdated prior to the granting of the award.

The continuation of a bursary is dependent upon the student continuing his/her full-time registration, satisfactory academic performance, and there being no material change in the recipient's financial circumstances.


Further information and application forms are available on the Leverhulme Trade Charities Trust website.
