Townsend Scholarship Programme
Scholarships to support Lambeth BME students from low income homes who gain a place at a Russell Group University
The generosity of a Lambeth resident resulted in the establishment of our Townsend Scholarship Programme. It supports Lambeth Black and Minority Ethnic pupils from low-income homes who gain a place at a Russell Group University. We make one scholarship each year worth £1,000 a term for three years (£9,000 in total).
To be eligible for a scholarship, students must:
Applications for courses starting in September 2023 open on 1 April 2023 and close on 16th June 2023.
Any eligible student that is not awarded a Townsend Scholarship will automatically be assessed for a Walcot Foundation student bursary, worth £1,800 per year, without having to make a further grant application.
