Southwark Scholarship Scheme

Our scholarship scheme can help you study at university in your choice of courses. Since our scheme began in 2011, we've helped more than 60 people enrol in higher education.

The scholarship has supported students to study a variety of subjects, including medicine, engineering, economics, law and art.

This year arts and creative industries scholarships are also available for the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at UAL’s Camberwell College of Arts and Certificate of Higher Education at London South Bank University.
