Student Bursaries


Bursary Status

Bursary Applications Will Close Soon

Applications will close on June 1st. We recommend 24th May as last day to pre-submit the on-line application form, to allow time for printing and posting as we must receive applications and uploaded course offer letters by the closing date.


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.

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.
