There has been a steady rise recently in the number of company scholarships being offered to UK students, either here in the UK, or from America. Companies create scholarships for lots of reasons such as encouraging diversity in their workforce, to attract graduate recruits or sometimes to get their brand recognised among students who are their target customer.
Whatever their motivation in offering these company scholarships, they represent a great opportunity as they are usually open to all students, wherever you are studying, and quite often whatever subject you are studying. And what’s more, it is often just a case of answering a question, either in the form of an essay, video or some other format.
You will find this type of scholarship on our database listed either under “Open to Any University” as the Institution or “Other” as the reason for the award.
Here are some examples, but this list is by no means exhaustive and new ones are being added all the time.
