A scholarship is financial support awarded to students during their time at university pursing a foundation course or an undergraduate or postgraduate degree.
A scholarship consists of a maintenance grant, travel allowance (flights and rail) and payment of tuition fees paid directly to the university each academic year. The Scholarship grant covers maintenance and the University’s tuition fees. If your chosen university is not within the UK, HMGoG will cap costs as per UK rates.
A maintenance grant is an assistive grant afforded to each student to help with living expenses incurred whilst studying in the UK. This is paid in three equal instalments at the beginning of each term (e.g. September, December and March).
