Open Book aims to break down barriers to higher education by working closely with a network of agencies to support people from a wide range of backgrounds, such as ex-offenders and those who have struggled with addiction and mental health.
Applications for existing offer holders and Clearing applicants are open from 17 August and will close on 17 October.
How to apply
Applications are made using our online application form, which will be available from 17 August to 17 October 2023.
Applications are now open for offer holders and Clearing applicants starting in September 2023.
Successful applicants will be selected on a competitive basis.
Initial shortlisting by eligibility criteria will be completed by our Scholarships Co-ordinator. All applicants who meet the eligibility criteria are then forwarded to the next selection stage.
Applications will then be considered by an awarding panel. All panel members understand that applicants will have a broad range of differing skills, attributes and experiences, so they will give equal consideration to both the applicant’s academic record and their answers to the questions posed in the award application form. Panel members also understand that what is important is the content of the answers and their relevance to the questions, not the standard of writing.
The panel will consist of representatives from Admissions, Widening Participation, and an academic department. The panel will assess the applications against the stated criteria.
Final award recipients and reserve candidates will be decided by the panel.
Scholarship payments will be made in January, March and May in terms 2 and 3 after completion of the first term. Scholarship payments will be made using the Higher Education Bursaries and Scholarships Scheme (HEBSS).
