Scholarships worth £100,000 are still available for undergraduates this academic year, which is good news for the 76% of students who, according to new research*, are in danger of running out of money in the first few weeks of term.
The Scholarship Hub has identified ten scholarships that are still open for applications.
“We urge students to look into scholarships, which can range from a few hundred pounds to thousands a year, and the money does not need to be paid back,” said Karen Kennard founder of The Scholarship Hub, www.thescholarshiphub.org.uk, the first comprehensive scholarship database of funding for universities in the UK.
“Application numbers are often surprisingly low, so the chances of getting one is reasonably high and you don’t always have to be an academic genius or from a low income family to be eligible.”
