Black Bristol Scholarships

Black students are underrepresented across many leading UK universities and the Black Bristol Scholarship programme will help us to actively address that within our own university.

Donate today to help create the following scholarships for Black students each year:

  • 20 Black Futures Scholarships to provide undergraduate students with both a bursary and targeted support from the Careers Service, alongside funding to support employability opportunities.
  • Three postgraduate scholarships for students within the University’s Widening Participation programmes, encouraging students to progress to taught master’s programmes.
  • £125,000 to grow the Opportunity Bristol studentships, which will support four to five students within the research community to pursue postgraduate research master’s, preparing them to pursue funded PhD opportunities.
  • Four PGCE scholarships to help increase the number of Black teachers in the UK education sector. 
  • Two Black Humanities master’s scholarships per year which will fully fund two teachers to complete the unique interdisciplinary course either full-time or part-time.

Eligible applicants will have one of the following categories of ethnicity:

  • Black African
  • Black Caribbean
  • Black Other
  • Mixed – White and Black Caribbean
  • Mixed – White and Black African
  • Other mixed background (to include Black African, Black Caribbean or Black Other)

I am thrilled to be launching this new Black Bristol Scholarship Programme....I am confident that together with our other initiatives to support our Black students and to decolonise the curriculum, this will help to make our University a truly inclusive environment for everyone.
