Please note:
The award of a scholarship does not confirm an offer to study at the University of Kent. Scholarships can only be awarded for extra-curricular projects for which the applicant is not receiving academic credit or payment. Recipients of other scholarships may still be eligible for a Community Scholarship if they meet the award criteria.
