What are the rules for making bursary and scholarship awards?

The bursary support package provided by the University of Cumbria offers financial support to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.  The Cumbria Bursary award and Partnership Progression Scholarship is provided through a fixed number of bursaries and uses a scored prioritisation process to impartially rank all eligible applicants (with household incomes of less than £25,000 per annum) and award bursaries to those with the highest scores.

The process prioritises those groups identified nationally and institutionally as experiencing more barriers to accessing and succeeding in higher education, such as students who have been in care or who have a disability. 

Please see the Bursary and Scholarship Policy for more detailed information.
