The BWCI Group’s undergraduate Bursary Scheme has been specially designed to support local students wishing to study for a degree at university. As well as providing financial support, our bursary students will participate in a structured training programme during their summer vacations, for the duration of their course. The bursary is £1,800 pa and would be payable in three termly instalments of £600 whilst you are at university.
Students studying for degrees in maths or economics, or degrees with some maths content will be given preference.
