Supporting Your Study

At the University of Lincoln, we believe passionately in the transformative power of higher education. Each year we welcome students from a diverse range of backgrounds from all over the world and we offer a variety of scholarships and bursaries which can provide extra financial assistance with the costs of study to eligible students.

Almost half of our new UK undergraduates currently qualify for our University of Lincoln Scholarship, worth £1,500 over three years of study. Our £1,000 Excellence Scholarships recognise outstanding academic achievement of new undergraduates across our four academic Colleges. We also offer an array of scholarships to support suitably qualified international students when they join us at Lincoln and there is support for postgraduate level study too.

Use the search filters on this page to see which of our scholarships and bursaries might be available to you. Please be aware that eligibility may vary depending on your academic background, household income, intended programme of study or nationality. The University of Lincoln reserves the right to withdraw or modify the scholarships and bursaries listed here at any time.
