Lion Rock Scholarship Programme Eligibility

Lion Rock Bursary and Scholarship

The launch of The Lion Rock Scholarship Programme in 2019 is the result of a kind donation from two Warwick alumni and aims to financially assist those students who may otherwise be facing financial challenges whilst at University. The Programme will enable recipients to concentrate more fully upon their academic studies and engage with wider enrichment activities to aid a well rounded and positive student experience.

The programme is comprised of two parts:

1) 6 X £5000 bursaries.
Applications are encouraged from all students studying on the WBS Foundation Year in 2019-20.
Applications open from Friday 1st November 2019 - Friday 22nd November 2019.

2) 1 X full fee tuition scholarship for three academic years of study.
Applications are exclusively open to the 6 successful candidates for the bursary outlined above.
Applications open from Summer 2020.
