Care leaver scholarships


Scholarships for care leavers starting their course in 2019.

How do I apply?

First you'll need to have applied for one of our undergraduate programmes.

You'll then need to register for a MyGoldsmiths online account. Once you've set up an account you can complete and submit a scholarship/bursary application online. Please use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as your web browser when submitting your application.

Prior to applications opening you will be sent a Personal Identification Number and details of how to create a MyGoldsmiths account to access scholarship applications.

Closing date: Midday, Friday 23 August, 2019

If you require a PIN number to create your MyGoldsmiths account and wish to apply for the scholarship, please email no later than Wednesday 21 August, 2019.

Unfortunately, we can't accept any PIN requests after this time, so don't delay!

To complete your application you'll need the following:

  • Statement/letter from your Local Authority as evidence you have been in the care of your Local Authority for a period of 13 weeks or more including during your 16th birthday
  • Academic reference
