The Sanctuary Scholarship
Scholarship Name The Sanctuary Scholarship
Academic Year 2021
Nationality Any
Scholarship Deadline 30 June 2021

This scholarship is for an offer holder seeking asylum or with refugee status in the United Kingdom. It covers tuition and accommodation costs, plus a maintenance grant.

 For 2021/22, we will offer two scholarships (undergraduate or postgraduate) to offer holders who are seeking asylum or have refugee status in the United Kingdom and are not eligible for financial support.

Successful scholars will receive:

  • Annual tuition fee waiver
  • Maintenance support of £5,000, paid in three instalments
  • Annual accommodation fee waiver for Avery Hill Campus.

Once you are awarded a status that allows you access to student finance (tuition-fee loans, etc.), you no longer receive the scholarship in subsequent academic years.

  • If studying with a Partner College, the tuition fee must be paid directly to the University of Greenwich.
  • You are unable to access Student Finance (Tuition and Maintenance Loans) due to your current immigration status.
  • You do not already hold a qualification that is equal to or higher than the course you are applying for.
  • You are resident in the UK.

You must also be able to provide documentary evidence to verify your circumstances.
