Scholarship Deadline: 
Applications for this scholarship will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Scholarship Summary: 
The University of Surrey would like to support UK undergraduates from low income households with a guaranteed bursary to enable them offset some of their schooling costs.

Scholarship Applicant Criteria: 
To be eligible for the Surrey Undergraduate Bursary;
Your household income must be less than £25,000
You must be normally resident in POLAR4 postcodes rated 1, 2 or 3*
You must be a UK or eligible EU student entering Surrey for undergraduate study
You must be paying full tuition fees (therefore NHS-funded students and students who are being funded are not eligible)
You must also have correctly filled out and submitted your application to Student Finance England for a loan and must also make sure that you and your parent/guardian have given your consent to share the information with the University.

EU students may only be eligible for this award if they are ordinarily resident in the UK and meet all the criteria. 

* POLAR (Participation of Local Areas) is an Office for Students (OfS) classification for the participation in higher education by young people by geographical area in the UK. It’s used to measure the widening participation performance of universities.

Value of Scholarship: 
The award of £2,500 will be paid to eligible students in full-time attendance at the relevant payment points in early December and early March with the following conditions:
Where the recipient is living on campus in their first year of study (Level 3 for Foundation Year students or Level 4 for First Year students), the bursary will be paid against their accommodation fees.
Cash payments will only apply where the Level 3 or Level 4 recipient is not living on campus in the first year of study.  All subsequent years where a student remains eligible, the bursary will be paid as a cash bursary.
The bursary will be awarded in every year of undergraduate study provided the recipient progresses normally on the programme, and excluding the Professional Training year or repeat periods of study.
Scholarship Application Guide: 
The University will identify eligible students, so there is no application form for this scheme.
