All Scottish students can apply for a Talent Scholarship, £1000 cash for every year of undergraduate or taught postgraduate study, for anyone with excellent academic achievement facing financial hardship that might otherwise impact negatively on their studies.

You need to apply by September in your year of entry and there are a fixed number of scholarships available for each yearly intake of new undergraduates. Postgraduate’s can also apply for a PG Talent Scholarship.

You can search for all available sources of funding support, including the Talent Scholarships, on our scholarship database.

To use our scholarship database, state whether you are a prospective or current student, what type (undergraduate, postgraduate taught or research) and where you’re from and it will tell you what’s available. The funding could relate to your subject(s) of study, age, gender or sports interest, be based on where you’re from or you’re potential career, so make sure you look at all available options since you can often apply for more than one.

There are also a range of external sources of funding and support, often from third sector agencies and organisations, perhaps with a specific focus or area.  A few examples are:

The Scottish Government also publish a guide to what help they provide each year.
