About The Cumbria Bursary
The Cumbria Bursary is our targeted financial support package for 1st year ‘home’ undergraduate students studying a qualifying course who are commencing their studies in the 2021/22 academic year. It is a non-repayable bursary designed to support students with a household income of less than £25,000.
The Cumbria Bursary is provided through a fixed number of allocated awards and uses a scored prioritisation process to impartially rank all eligible applicants (with household incomes of less than £25,000 per annum). We award bursaries to those with the highest scores.
These awards are worth £1,000 per year of full-time study or £500 per year of part-time study, for a maximum of 5 years (part-time) for students entering onto full time or substantive part-time* undergraduate programmes.
A proportion of our Cumbria Bursaries will be allocated specifically to students who are aged 21 and over on the 1st September 2021, who also meet the eligibility criteria outlined below.
*Part-time students must be studying at least 50% of a full-time equivalent course and registered on a minimum three-year course.
