The University is pleased to announce that Stormzy is again offering two scholarships to black UK students who are admitted to the University of Cambridge in autumn 2020.
The scholarships, which are non-repayable, will cover the full cost of tuition fees and provide a maintenance grant which will significantly reduce the need for awardees to take out government or commercial loans. This support will be available to recipients for up to four years of undergraduate study. For 2020-21, the total award to each student for the year will be worth £18,000. Receipt of this award will not affect eligibility for a Cambridge Bursary.
To be eligible for a Stormzy Scholarship, applicants must:
- Have one of the following categories of ethnicity: Black African; Black Caribbean; Black Other; Mixed – White and Black Caribbean; Mixed – White and Black African; or Other mixed background (to include Black African, Black Caribbean or Black Other)
- Have a confirmed place for entry to the University of Cambridge for a first undergraduate degree, and due to commence study in October 2020. (You can check the status of your offer on UCAS Track at https://track.ucas.com/.)
- Have been assessed for fee status as a ‘home’ student. You were advised of your fee status in the offer letter issued to you earlier this year. If you are in doubt, please contact Churchill College.
- Have applied to Student Finance (England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland) for a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan, and have received confirmation that they have been assessed and will receive full financial support. An income assessment must have been conducted and consent given to share the information with the University.
