ACH Crisford Charitable Foundation Bursary

Applications for this bursary are now closed.

We know going to university can sometimes be expensive, however a very generous donation has been given by The ACH Crisford Charitable Foundation, awarding 10 bursaries of £500 to new Staffordshire University London students (subject to eligibility).

Eligibility Criteria

Prospective students must meet the following criteria in order to be eligible to apply for the one of the bursaries:

  • Be a first year/ Level 4 undergraduate only
  • Have paid full tuition fees as a full-time on-campus student
  • Have a household income of below £30,000 per annum that is assessed by their award authority, and have given consent for this information to be shared with the University
  • Be studying a non-funded course (i.e. not entitled to receive any government support)
  • Attained high achieving grades via the UCAS ranking system
  • Be a UK home student
  • Be studying at Staffordshire University London

The bursary will be paid in two instalments directly to the bank account provided – Students must be in full attendance for these payments.

Students must be actively engaged in their studies, with failure to do this resulting in the bursary being taken away.

Students must also be willing to be involved in University publicity campaigns e.g. social media, web, magazines if required.

You will be required to provide a brief annual report to update the donor on your studies and how the funding has helped.
