Student Bursaries


Current Application Status

2020 Bursary Applications Now Open.


Bursaries are available to students from Perthshire (or with close associations to Perthshire) who are about to enter their first year of an undergraduate course at one of Glasgow's universities, or an HNC/HND course at one of Glasgow's colleges (i.e. students who are funded by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland SAAS).

Bursaries are normally awarded for the duration of undergraduate studies, up to a maximum of five years. Bursaries are not available for those in post-graduate studies or professional pre-registration courses.

There are a limited number of new bursaries available each year, typically around six, but the number is dependent on a variety of factors.
