If you are a student of any of the following colleges, you might be eligible for one of our Partnership Progression Scholarships offered to those applying to the University immediately after Further Education:

  • Blackburn College
  • Bury College
  • Carlisle College
  • Doncaster College
  • Furness College
  • Kendal College
  • Lakes College West Cumbria
  • Lancaster and Morecambe College
  • Newton Rigg (Askham Bryan) College
  • Northumberland College
  • Southport College

We have up to 35 Progression Scholarships for students starting study in the 2020/21 academic year.

The awards are worth £500 in total; these non-repayable grants are paid directly to your bank account in the first year only. The Progression Scholarship can be received alongside the Cumbria Bursary if a recipient is eligible and ranked to receive both awards.

You do not need to apply separately for the Progression Scholarship, simply applying for your student funding through your funding body will enable us to assess your eligibility alongside the information you provide on your UCAS application form. However, it is important that you apply for income assessed student finance through your funding body (e.g. Student Finance England) as early as possible. In your application you must give consent to share your financial information with your Higher Education Institution.

If you're eligible, be sure to complete your funding application before 2nd October 2020.

Please note: We only contact successful candidates. If successful, you will be notified in writing during October or November. Letters are sent via the Student Loans Company; these will be forwarded to the correspondence address given on your Student Finance application and can also be accessed online via your student finance account.

Eligibility Criteria 

  • Progressed to the University of Cumbria from one of the designated Further Education Partner Colleges.
  • entering into year 1 or integrated foundation year of a specified undergraduate degree at the University of Cumbria
  • from a household income of £0 as assessed by Student Finance England, Student Finance Wales, Student Finance Northern Ireland or Student Awards Agency Scotland. Assessed by funding provider before 2nd October 2020.

Prioritisation Criteria 

Where there are more students who meet the criteria than there are awards available, these are allocated according to the following prioritisation criteria:

  • Your household income is nil and you have declared Care Leaver status*
  • Your household income is nil and you have declared a disability to us

*as confirmed via the Student Finance application process or direct to the University as part of the online registration process

If I am unsuccessful can I appeal? 

There are a limited number of Progression Scholarships available, allocated at the beginning of the first year of an eligible three or four year degree course. Students may meet the criteria for the Progression Scholarship award; however, there are usually more eligible students than awards available.

Students are scored against the eligibility and prioritisation criteria to determine who receives an award. The decision on granting Progression Scholarships awards made by the panel is final; unfortunately, we cannot accept any appeals on this basis.

If you do wish to appeal please email moneyadvice@cumbria.ac.uk with further details.

We aim to respond to an appeal within 10 working days of receipt.

Please email moneyadvice@cumbria.ac.uk if you have any further questions.
