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!

Ultimately, if you don’t keep your eye out for new scholarships, you will see that you could be missing out on a lot of money.
