The award provides £25,000 per year for a three year undergraduate programme and is subject to satisfactory academic progress. The award will be applied to cover tuition fees first and the rest will be paid as maintenance allowance.

If a student on a four year undergraduate programme receives this award, payments will be made pro rata, i.e. they will receive £18,750 for each of their four years of study.

The successful awardee will also be offered the opportunity to undertake an unpaid internship at Baxter Healthcare and/or participate in a mentoring scheme.

One award is available per year.


The criterion for awarding the bursary is financial need and you will need to demonstrate this in the application.

How to apply

The Baxter Healthcare Scholarship is one of the schemes that make up the Undergraduate Funding and Access Awards (UGFA).
