Unite Foundation Scholarship

This fund is separate to the University. To apply for this as well, please follow this link: https://www.unitefoundation.co.uk/get-a-scholarship/

The Unite Foundation Scholarship is a charitable trust intended to support access to higher education. Emphasis is placed on supporting young people with academic ability and ambition for whom access to a secure home is particularly meaningful; students who have previously been in care or are estranged from their parents.

The scholarship provides free 365/6-day accommodation in a Unite Students property for three years of undergraduate study. The Unite Foundation team will help scholars settle in, keep in touch and offer plenty of opportunities for employment and enjoyment. So far, over 500 estranged and care experienced young people have gone to university on the Unite Foundation scholarship.

Eligible candidates must be:

  • 25 or under.
  • A statutory care leaver or estranged from your family.
  • Starting or studying your first undergraduate degree.
  • Eligible for UK home fee status.
  • Applying to one of the Unite Foundation’s partner universities (includes Edinburgh Napier University).
