The Scholarship Supported By The Marks Family Charitable Trust

The scholarships supported by the Marks Family Charitable Trust are open to students embarking on a postgraduate degree programme (Masters or Doctorate). Candidates must be able to demonstrate how their chosen degree will make a valuable contribution to society. Only exceptional candidates with proven academic excellence will be considered.

The scholarships will cover ‘home’ tuition fees (up to £9,500 per year). Applicants will need to demonstrate that they can cover their living costs whilst at university. The scholarships will be awarded to students who have an asylum seeking background and people who are not eligible for student finance will be prioritised.

      Applications for the September 2024 intake of this scholarship have closed as of May 2024. Applications for the 2025 intake will open spring of 2025.

Please note that there is no advantage for students who submit their applications first, so please take your time and fill in applications carefully. Applications must be made using the online form - however, should you wish to prepare your answers, you can do so using this Word version of the form.
