“Tomorrow’s World” BAME in Higher Education Scholarship

Available for current final year Kent undergraduates with a 2.1 or first class degree continuing to Master’s study at any of Kent’s locations (UK Fee paying students). For applicants who identify as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME). Kent understands, at times, that ‘BAME’ does not fully reflect the complexity or nuances of diversity within the UK. Here, we use ‘BAME’ to highlight racial identities critically underrepresented within Higher Education - a focus this scholarship is intended to address.

These scholarships provide £3,000 towards the cost of tuition fees and a total of 18 awards will be available under the scheme.
