Bursary Applications Will Open Next March
Applications for Student Bursaries are currently closed but will open on March 1st 2023 (provisionally). Bursaries of 750 pounds rising to 1000 pounds per annum will be available.
All bursary payments for academic year 2022 - 2023 have now been made. Good luck to all our bursars with their courses.
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). Please check the Bursary Ts & Cs below for eligibility details.
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. The number is variable and dependent on a variety of factors.
After you have read this page thoroughly, please read the Application Procedure page carefully before starting your application.
Closing Date: Remember, the closing date (see timetable below) is the latest we must receive your signed/dated hard copy application and uploaded course offer letter, so be sure to complete and pre-submit the on-line form as early as possible to allow yourself time for printing and posting.

Bursary Application Timetable
The timetable is driven by several factors including university application times, school summer holidays, publication of examination results/grades, receiving references and SAAS awards, etc., and so is liable to minor change.
The most important (and unalterable) milestone is the closing date. We must receive your printed/signed/dated application and your uploaded course offer letter by then.
