The Leverhulme Trade Charities proudly funds Postgraduate Bursaries for any eligible UK students who are enrolling master and doctoral program at Warwick University. UP £5,000 will be granted to the selected applicant of this bursary. To apply you must submit applocation before 1 October.

Program Overview
The Leverhulme Trade Charities Postgraduate Bursaries aims to support any students from the United Kingdom who are (or who are connected with) Commercial Travellers, Grocers or Chemists, in financial need undertaking full-time Postgraduate degree courses at institutions in the United Kingdom, leading to recognised qualifications (e.g. PhD/MSc). The information guidelines describe the terms of reference of the awards, and the following terms and conditions apply to all bursaries.

Bursaries will be paid to the university rather than directly to the student. This payment will be made after the receipt of an invoice or a letter requesting the funds. This document should indicate the student’s name and period of each claim. Any unspent funds should be returned if a student fails to complete their course or the host institution decides to terminate the course for any reason.

Award Value
Up to £5,000. This amount may be adjusted according to the applicant’s personal financial need and to the amount of funds available.

Any full-time postgraduate degree course at a higher or further education institution in the UK, being either a body recognised by the Secretary of State for Education and Employment for the award of a degree or a body providing courses in preparation for a degree to be granted by a recognised body.
