Helena Kennedy Foundation (HKF) Bursary

Up to £1,500

Each year the Helena Kennedy Foundation invites Further Education and Sixth Form Colleges and Adult Education Centres across the UK to nominate up to 5 students for a Helena Kennedy Foundation Award.

Awards Scheme

The awards scheme, which has been running since 1998, is aimed at providing much-needed support to students from the further education sector who have overcome significant obstacles, both financial and personal, to complete their further education. Helena Kennedy Foundation awards are designed to support students in their progression to Higher Education, to improve chances of success in Higher Education and to increase employability when students move from higher education to work.

Application Process

The Helena Kennedy Foundation accepts applications each year from the 1st January to the 31st March. The Foundation only accepts applications from students who are in their final year of further education and intend to progress to higher education in the same year.
The University of Winchester offers 3 badged bursaries each year to students coming to study at the university. The bursary is worth £500 a year for three years of study.

All applications are received and processed by the Helena Kennedy Foundation.

Full-time undergraduate UK, EU and Channel Islands students are welcome to apply.

The University of Winchester provides support to students who are seeking asylum or humanitarian protection in the UK. Find out more on the  page.
