The York Futures Scholarship (formerly Achieving Excellence Bursary) funds students to access opportunities that give them a head start in the job market. It is funded by York’s alumni and friends community through philanthropic donations.
Applications are open to undergraduate students who successfully complete a York Award application at the start of their second academic year.
To apply for the scholarship you must be able to demonstrate steps taken to enhance your employability. This is by:
York Award applications will open on Monday 24 September 2018 (Week 1 Autumn Term) and close on Monday 15 October (Week 4 Autumn Term). At the time of applying for the York Award students can indicate their intention to apply for a York Futures Scholarship.
Once all York Award applications have been received, students who have indicated they are interested in a York Futures Scholarship will be sent a separate application form which they will have 2 weeks to compete and submit. Successful applicants will then receive the first instalment of the Scholarship at the end of the 2018 Autumn Term. Please note it is a prerequisite for applying to the Scholarship that you are able to attend the 2018 Scholars Welcome Reception on Wednesday 28 November (Week 10 Autumn Term).
