Resources for teachers and careers advisers
The number of scholarships, grants and bursaries being offered to students by companies, professional associations, charities & trusts is on the increase and yet the vast majority of students are not aware of where and how to find these.
With just 30% of students saying they apply for this type of funding, these organisations are often struggling to get enough applicants. Given the cost of going to university is now a major concern for students, sixth form teachers and careers advisers are being asked to make this a part of their overall discussions on funding university.
This collection of downloadable educational resources on the subject is free to use in school and to hand out to students and parents.
