ICAS Foundation - University of Glasgow Scholarships


The ICAS Foundation and University of Glasgow are offering scholarships of up to £2,500 per year to individuals whose parents or guardians earn under a certain threshold per annum.

Bursaries are open to high school pupils or college students who are applying to study at Glasgow University on an approved course in accountancy or finance and who meet the eligibility criteria. 

Mentoring scheme

All scholarship recipients will also receive support as part of the mentoring scheme. This scheme brings together young people with experienced Chartered Accountants who will be able to offer guidance, advice, support and encouragement.

The ICAS Foundation is a Scottish registered charity established in 2012 to help make a difference to young people who are in need of financial and mentoring assistance to help them on their journey into a professional career in accountancy or finance.

This may include, but is not limited to the following:

  • School leavers who have been accepted for a university course studying accountancy or finance but can clearly demonstrate the difficulty they will have in meeting direct education-related expenses such as living costs, books, library fees and travel
  • University students of accountancy or finance related disciplines who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in difficult financial circumstances.


You are eligible to apply for a scholarship or a grant if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • you will receive a SG Young Students Bursary.
  • you intend to study an accountancy or finance course at university.
  • parental income is below £34,000 per annum.
