STEM Enterprise Scholarship 2012-13
The College will be offering 30 STEM Enterprise Scholarships worth £30,000 each for new students starting in 2012-13.
What is the STEM Enterprise Scholarship?
The College wishes to support the UK’s knowledge economy agenda by encouraging access to STEM subject (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) undergraduate study through a STEM Enterprise Scholarship.
How much is a STEM Enterprise Scholarship?
Every successful applicant will receive a full £9,000 fee waiver plus a £1,000 cash bursary, totalling £10,000 of support for each academic year up to a maximum of 3 years.
Successful applicants will not be eligible for other fee waiver schemes or for a King’s Living Bursary as there is already a bursary element to the financial aid package being offered to these students.
In order to be eligible to apply for the King’s STEM Enterprise Scholarship, students must:
be studying a STEM subject (science, technology, engineering and maths);
have an assessed household income of £25,000 pa or less;
be in receipt of the maximum maintenance grant (£3,250);
be undertaking their first undergraduate degree programme;
have ‘firmly’ accepted an offer of a place at King’s on an eligible programme;
not be NHS-funded in years 1-3 of their programme;
priority will be given to students from partnership schools and colleges.
Please note that meeting the listed eligibility criteria for the STEM Enterprise Scholarship alone will not automatically guarantee an award, as there are only 30 scholarships available.
