Helena Kennedy Foundation 2022 Bursary Application

HKF contributes to widening participation in higher education by awarding annual bursaries to students who have overcome significant personal and financial hardship to complete a course in a further education college and progress to higher education.

Financial Support: Successful students are usually awarded a £2,250 bursary towards the costs of continuing their education and £1,500 if you are completing the DISCOVER Application. The bursary is paid in annual instalments throughout the student’s further or higher education course. Please note that the amount of the bursary can vary and some students will be offered scholarships instead of a bursary.

Personal Support: In addition to financial support, successful students will have the opportunity to take part in the Foundation’s training, mentoring and work-shadowing programmes. This additional support and ongoing contact with the Foundation are key to the organisation’s objectives and so students should only apply if they feel they will benefit from both the financial support and the additional services available.
