Top ten Scholarships open to all UK students

“Open to all left handed women, who grew up in Lambeth but undertook most of their education in The Cotswolds, have achieved AAB in their A-levels and love cats”

Does this sound familiar? Sometimes, looking for a scholarship you are eligible to apply for can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. The eligibility criteria are often quite tight and specific, and it can be a disheartening process looking for something you can apply for.

So here’s a bit of light relief for you. Here is our top ten list of scholarships that are open to all students. Anyone can apply, whatever you are studying, where ever you are studying and whatever else you like to do with your life! Many of these come from America as the scholarship offerings are much more developed than they are here, but they are open to UK students. There are also an increasing number from the UK.

Please note, many of the deadlines for these scholarships will have already passed for this year, but they will most likely be offered again next year, so do keep an eye on them. You can find more like this by selecting “No specific university” as the Institution and “No specific subject” as the course on our database.
