Unusual scholarships and bursaries in the UK

unusual scholarships, grants and bursaries

There are some pretty weird scholarships available in the USA for things like being tall, or for Star Trek fans.
So far, that level of weirdness hasn’t really translated to the UK but there are still some pretty unusual scholarships available, which don’t match the typical idea of why you might expect to receive a scholarship.

Here are some examples of the unusual scholarships available in the UK
