RAU Cirencester Scholarship
The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) is delighted to offer scholarships to attract and reward the brightest local students, regardless of background.
About the scholarship
There is one postgraduate award available for 2018 entry.
This scholarship (paid as a tuition fee waiver) will be available to new taught RAU students, both full and part-time, who live and/or have within the last two years studied within a 25 mile radius of Cirencester (not previously at the RAU) and who can demonstrate academic excellence, leadership, and motivation to succeed by means of their Programme and Scholarship applications and supporting references. We will take into account academic and community achievements, past, present and potential, as well as overcoming hardship.
The scholarship will be worth £3,000 per annum, paid in three equal instalments during the academic year.
Applicants for part-time study programmes who meet the criteria above and who will be studying a minimum of 25% of the full-time study load will receive a fee waiver pro rata to their study load. For example, a student studying 50% of full time, equivalent to 60 credits, would receive an award of £1,500. The award would be adjusted to match study pattern in future years of study..
How do I apply?
This scholarship is now closed for applications.
