The Scholarship Fund

Help our students reach their full potential by removing financial barriers

The scholarship funds we receive, through kind donations from supporters who share our vision and our passion for making a difference, play a significant role in enabling our students to continue to progress through their studies. A £1,000 grant from fund can often mean the difference between a student continuing with their studies, or being forced to give up.

Each year the fund typically receives three times more applications than the number of awards available. We would love to be in a position to help more of our students but we urgently need donations to enable us to do this.

The case studies below tell the personal stories of just a few of our scholarship recipients. If any of these stories strike a chord, we would be delighted if you would consider helping us to make a difference.

Derek Bedford"Having been so fortunate in being granted funding for both my degrees, I felt I must make a contribution to help students today who need financial assistance to attend university.  So ten years ago, as a member of the Foundation, I set up a regular donation towards UHI scholarships and will, while I am able, continue to do so."
