Solent University has launched a scholarship for people seeking sanctuary in the UK who wish to study an undergraduate degree. The scheme offers a three-year tuition fee waiver and a grant of £3,000 for living costs to allow a student to access higher education.
The scholarship is now open for applications until 18 June 2021.

The scholarship and launch of a new university commitment was announced on 12 April at a network meeting of Solent staff, students and external organisations interested in the initiative. As part of its new strategy, the University is working to foster a culture of welcome, awareness, and inclusivity across their campus and community.
