      Scholarship

      I study mathematics and my university offer a scholarship to one person each year. I applied and was successful in my application and the money had genuinely made my university experience a lot smoother. I was able to buy a laptop to do work when I wasn’t able to make it into university. I also receive a bursary because of my household income (called the Core Bursary). I’d advise anyone who may think they need the money to apply because even if you think you don’t need the money, things change and stuff happens which can put you in a bad place financially and it’s less stressful knowing you can afford to live.

      Scholarship

      I heard that low income families could apply and thought there is nothing to lose so I applied and it turned out I was eligible. I would advise anyone who thinks there is even a chance that they'd be eligible to apply.
