Scholarships – improving access to higher education
Scholarships are financial awards given to students who meet a particular academic threshold. They widen access to education by covering the costs of study.
Bursaries – helping students overcome financial pressure
Bursaries allow promising students to excel in education, even if they face financial pressures at home. You can provide this life-changing support through services and resources, as well as cash.
Sponsorship – enhance your profile and your workforce
A sponsorship is where you pay towards the course fees for a given student. They can help attract people to your business, and develop the skills of your workforce. Our sponsorship schemes are versatile, and can be created bespoke to your business.
Mentoring — share your knowledge with a promising student
Mentoring gives you a chance to share your industry knowledge and professional expertise — giving a student valuable insight for their career.
Organisations who have offered mentors include household names such as HSBC, Sheffield Wednesday FC, and the Department for Education, and smaller organisations including self-employed individuals.
