We are pleased to be working alongside One Stop to support social mobility through the One Stop Scholarship programme for a second year.
The One Stop Scholarship Programme will support young people, who are self-supporting or from low income backgrounds, through University. Candidates will receive financial support and real life work experience throughout their studies while working towards a graduate role at One Stop.
What does the Scholarship Programme include?
The One Stop scholarship programme brings together the following elements of support:
A bursary of £15,000 over three years. This will be paid via an upfront payment at the start of the University course to support with essential purchases, followed by monthly instalments during term time. This support is applied for annually and is subject to continued engagement with the programme.
