About this opportunity

An accommodation scholarship for care leavers/care experienced (Scotland) and estranged students

Having somewhere of your own to call home matters. With the Unite Foundation scholarship, you’ll have accommodation and bills covered for up to 3 years of study. That includes all through the holidays too, so you don’t have to wonder where to go during reading weeks or over Christmas or summer. You can even stay the summer after you graduate to plan your next move. The Unite Foundation team will help you settle in, keep in touch and offer plenty of opportunities for employment and enjoyment. So far, over 600 estranged and care experienced young people have gone to university on the Unite Foundation scholarship, are you next?
