Scholarships and Bursaries for 2016 entry

1909 Excellence Award

Award value: £1,909 off the full cost of your tuition fees

In the year 1909 a small Technical Institute in the centre of Loughborough was established, which provided local facilities for further education and offered courses in technical subjects, science and art. That Loughborough is now an internationally known and respected University is largely due to the entrepreneurial vision of our founders.

To commemorate over 100 years of excellence, Loughborough University is proud to offer exceptional UK and EU students with a 2:1 or higher (or equivalent) from a recognised, high quality institution an additional £1,909 towards the cost of tuition fees.

The 1909 Excellence Award is a competitive scholarship that can be granted on top of the 20% Excellence Scholarship or the 20% Alumni Bursary for UK and EU students who can provide evidence of at least one of the following attributes:

OR

  • At least 2 years of relevant, professional work experience in an industry with link to their chosen postgraduate programme - your application should include a reference we can contact to verify this.
