The University has just signed an agreement with Lloyds Banking Group to provide support for 15 home undergraduate students a year from low income backgrounds.
Lloyds will provide 15 scholarships each year, starting from October 2012, for students from low income backgrounds. A scholarship will be worth up to £17,000 during their time at Warwick. The scholarships will consist of an annual cash bursary, additional annual awards based on academic achievement, opportunities for the best performers to receive end of course awards, a guaranteed ten week paid internship, mentoring from Lloyds staff and ongoing local and national cohort activities.
Successful scholars will also be invited to join Lloyds’ graduate leadership programme. In return, the scholars must give 100 hours of their time per year to volunteering in their local community.
