Record number of undergraduate tuition fee awards in 2018-19

As we reach the end of academic year 2018-19, we are pleased to report that 240 awards were made under the Undergraduate Tuition Fee Grants Scheme to undergraduates enrolled at Scottish institutions of Higher Education. This represents a 40% increase on the previous year.

During the academic year the Trust received 287 applications and awarded 240 grants – amounting to £412,088 and a success rate of 84%. The vast majority of successful applicants withdrew from a previous course of study or are changing course. We are delighted to report that thanks to a new partnership with the University of Glasgow we have been able to support a small number of Asylum Seekers.

More information on this year’s round can be found in this report.

Applications are now open for 2019-20 and must be submitted by 2nd December 2019.
