In the case of student applications, priority will be given to students from a BAME background.

Funds permitting, priority will then be extended to the following groups:

  • from low participation neighbourhoods (identified via POLAR 3 methods)
  • who declare a disability
  • vulnerable groups, e.g. care leavers, estranged students
  • students must have obtained full student funding with Student Finance England/Student Finance Wales as per their circumstances



Información General

Descripción de la beca:

The scholarships:

  • a minimum of 20 awards ranging from £200 to a maximum value of £1,000
  • can be awarded for a variety of projects, including language exchange programmes, initiatives to promote volunteering and the development of employability skills
  • can be used to study/research at a partner institution within the Santander Universities network at one of the countries listed

Where the panel believes that a proposal does not represent value for money yet wishes to partially support the activity, funding may be offered at a reduced level.


Before completing the application form, please read the criteria and regulations carefully.


The University reserves the right to vary all or any scholarship awards at its sole discretion.

Criteria

The principal criterion for the award of a grant in 2019/20 is that the proposed project will make a demonstrable and tangible contribution to the applicant’s studies, research or employability. Applicants must explain how the proposed project will satisfy this requirement.

We welcome applications from students for whom travel abroad would facilitate and augment existing extra-curricular learning initiatives or directly benefit their course.

Successful applicants will be required to write a short review or summary of their experiences abroad for publication within University and Santander materials.

In the case of student applications, priority will be given to students from a BAME background.

  • who declare a disability
  • vulnerable groups, e.g. care leavers, estranged students
  • students must have obtained full student funding with Student Finance England/Student Finance Wales as per their circumstances

Applicants must:

  • write a clear application, demonstrating thorough research into their application for scholarship funding
  • include a clear breakdown of expected costs
  • describe how receiving the support would enhance their academic performance and future employability

Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate that the proposed mobility will benefit their course of study, employability or other extra-curricular learning initiatives being pursued.

Awards must be taken up within the 2019/20 academic year and travel must take place by 31 August 2020.

The value of the scholarship will be paid directly to the scholarship holder and can be used as a contribution towards the costs of travel, accommodation, subsistence or course attendance.

The University has a duty of care towards students and consequently will risk assess the proposed activity within the student’s application. 

In the event there is a risk to the student, e.g. travelling in a country where the Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not recommend travel due to safety concerns, the application may not be supported.
