The small print
- Partner scholarships are allocated using specific criteria.
- Partner scholarships may be held in addition to a University Bursary or scholarship.
- The partner scholarship scheme is not related to any other University Scholarship or the income-contingent bursary awards.
- Partner scholarships can only be awarded to home students.
- Students who have been notified of a partner scholarship award must register with the University of Kent within four weeks of the start of that academic year in order to receive the award.
How are the scholarships allocated?
- Partner Schools will allocate their two annual scholarships using specific criteria. The headteacher, advised by their relevant staff, will nominate two students and compile a ranked reserve list of up to five additional students on the nomination form.
- Partner Colleges will allocate their three annual scholarships (including one for Access) using specific criteria. There will be a named individual in each college responsible for drawing up the allocation lists and for co-ordinating the nominations from relevant sections in the college (including Access provision). They will complete two nomination forms. The first will nominate two students from the college and list up to five reservists in ranked order. The second will nominate one Access student and list up to five reservists in ranked order.
- The general criteria for nomination of Access students are the same as for other categories although, where a wider contribution to the place of study may not be demonstrable, greater emphasis will be placed upon academic attainment.
- All students within the schools and colleges will be made aware of the scheme through the annual Partner Schools’ prospectus, posters and leaflets. However, students may need to be invited to apply by the relevant staff member.
