Sir Thomas White Scholarship

The Sir Thomas White scholarship will support a student with academic potential, with the proviso that the selection panel is confident that there is evidence of financial need.

The scholarship is for £4,500, which will be paid to one successful recipient in annual payments of £1,500, subject to satisfactory progress.

Unsuccessful applicants who meet the residence criteria for the award will automatically be considered for an award from the charity which is currently £800 in the first year and £500 in subsequent years, subject to an application being made in future years.
