Additional information

A named scholarship is a prestigious award that recognises merit and motivation, not only financial need. Named scholars are chosen through a selection process. A panel of faculty members will review applications and the donor will have the opportunity to participate in the shortlisting process.

The donor does not correspond with applicants; the decision of the panel is final.

To say thank you and show the impact of such a generous gift, the donor is sent yearly updates on the scholar. Therefore, scholars must be responsive to Kingston University staff managing the relationship with the donor.

We encourage you to apply – even if you're not selected for this scholarship, you will be taken in consideration for internships and work placement opportunities.
