Postgraduatesearch.com, part of the Hotcourses group, is offering £10,000 of bursaries to students starting a postgrad course in the UK this year.
Entrants for the new bursary are asked to demonstrate passion and justification on why they should receive extra funding.
Open to students of any nationality, the money will be given to the most engaging, imaginative and creative entries; students have the choice of applying through the written word, a video or another means of communication, as long as they explain what they are studying, why they deserve the money and what they hope to do after the course.
Simon Emmett, Managing Director of the higher education portfolio at Hotcourses said: “With the first round of students paying the full annual £9,000 tuition fees graduating this year, postgraduate study is becoming an unreachable dream for the average student. With crippling debts of £50,000 or more, postgraduate study just isn’t possible anymore.
“At Postgraduate Search, we are firm believers in the need for postgraduate education to equip graduates with the skills they need to meet the demand for a more skilled workforce in the UK.
“This is why we are committed to giving away up to £10,000 worth of bursaries to help students who are more in need now than ever.”
