Local Student Bursary Scheme

The Local Student Bursary Scheme is entirely funded by alumni (former Solent students), staff and friends of Solent University. Through their kind donations we are able to support local students.  

The bursary is £1,000 made in two £500 payments (in the first and second semester) for one academic year only.  

Students will need to reapply each academic year if they want to be considered to receive the bursary again.  

This year 15 bursaries of £1,000 are available for undergraduate students studying at Solent University.

  • A UK student
