UCL Scholarships and funding


The Chris Seymour Bursary

The Chris Seymour Bursary aims to provide one scholarship to enable a female UK domiciled student to pursue an undergraduate degree in Engineering at UCL.

Key information

Value: £18,750 (per year)
Available to: Prospective students
Selection criteria: Financial need and disadvantaged background
Eligible students: UK domiciled with Home fee status
Eligible programmes: Specified undergraduate programmes (see below)
Deadline: 11.59pm BST, Friday 2 July 2021


Eligible candidates must:

  • be domiciled in the UK with Home fee status;
  • be from a disadvantaged background;
  • be a female student on an undergraduate programme within the UCL Faculty of Engineering Sciences.

The first preference is for an award to be made to student within the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Should this not be possible the award will be made to a female student on another undergraduate course within the Faculty that has historically had significant under-representation of female students within the cohort.

Value, benefits, and duration

The award provides £18,750 per year for a three year undergraduate programme and is subject to satisfactory academic progress. The award can be applied to cover tuition fees or maintenance costs depending on the awardees' preference.

If a student on a four year undergraduate programme receives this award, payments will be made pro rata, i.e. they will receive £14,062.50 for each of their four years of study.


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

How to apply

The Chris Seymour Bursary is one of the schemes that make up the Undergraduate Funding and Access Awards (UGFA).

To be considered for a Chris Seymour Bursary, please follow the procedure on the UGFA webpage.


The UGFAs will be awarded by recommendation by a panel composed of UCL staff. The successful candidates will be notified as soon as decisions are made by mid-September.
