The University of Wolverhampton has announced that it
has offered more than 600 scholarships to new students to help them
financially through their studies.
A total of 420 National
Scholarships were awarded to new UK/EU students due to start at
the University in the coming academic year in September.
The scholarship is awarded to high achieving students whose
household income in less than £25,000.
Around 200 Distinction
Scholarships have also been awarded. These are given to new
UK/EU students who have achieved AAB at A-level or equivalent.
Both scholarships are worth up to £3,500 to students in their
first year and are made up of: £1,000 in cash, £1,000 off their
fees and a further £1,000 fee waiver or £1,500 off accommodation
Pro Vice Chancellor Jane Nelson said: “It is vital to be able to
offer scholarships to students for a number of reasons.
“For those who may come from a low income household, it can make
the difference to them choosing to come to University and really
help them through their studies.
“Also it’s important to recognise excellence and achievement in
a person’s studies.
“We realise that going to University is not for everyone but for
those that do choose to come it can vastly improve their life
chances and give them a huge step up onto the ladder for future
For all 2012 full-time undergraduate UK entrants the University
also offers a Continuing
Achievement Reward, which enables students who successfully
complete each year of study to claim a £1,000 fee waiver when they
enrol for the following year and eventually graduate.
