Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit. For your scholarship to continue from semester to semester, you need to maintain high academic achievement. Bursaries are awarded on the basis of need and sound academic achievement. If you’re seeking a bursary, you’ll need to provide evidence of financial hardship.
Most scholarships and bursaries are offered as a remission of College fees rather than as a cash payment.
You can apply for either a scholarship or a bursary or for consideration in both categories. You can apply for more than one scholarship at a time.
Existing Emmanuel College residents: Submit your application no later than 30 November.
New applicants: Submit your completed application as soon as possible after submitting your separate online application for residence.
All scholarships and bursaries are awarded on an annual basis, so you need to reapply each year.
