Citizens of Change 100

In 1921, the first eleven Citizens of Change enrolled on our campus. One hundred years later, as we celebrate our centenary, we honour their legacy with our unique ‘Citizens of Change 100’ scholarships.

Whether you’re an inventor, an activist, an entrepreneur or a dreamer, we want to hear about your ambitions for making the world a better place. 

To be considered, record and share a video (60 seconds max.) in response to the question: What do you want to change?

This could be anything from your future to crime in your community, from the climate crisis to people's health.

One hundred Citizens of Change, to celebrate one hundred years of change.

What's on offer?

50 scholarships for UK and EU students - £7,500 (£2,500 per year for the first 3 years of your course). 

50 scholarships for international students - 50% off your first year tuition fees.

Who is eligible?

Any student who holds an offer to study at the University of Leicester, on a full time campus-based undergraduate course starting in September 2021. Successful applicants will need to have made Leicester their firm choice and have met the conditions of their offer (please see the below terms and conditions).

How do I apply?

Create a short video (60 seconds maximum) that answers the question: “What do you want to change?”. The video must be in portrait orientation – we suggest making use of TikTok or Instagram Reels.

Submit your video file or video URL by email to citizens100@leicester.ac.uk along with your UCAS Personal ID. If creating your video on TikTok or Instagram please tag @uniofleicester and #OursToChange – but be sure to email us with your video URL and student ID to ensure entry.

We’re not looking for filmmaking or acting skills, but instead how you approach the question and what your ambitions to change the world are.

You do not have to appear on screen in the video yourself, and may also submit your video as part of a group (up to a maximum of 5 people) - so long as at least one of you holds an offer at the University of Leicester. So, you can get your friends, family and pets involved.

Terms and conditions

See below for further detail on how to submit your entry, alongside timelines and deadlines.

Although you are welcome to get started and create and share your video today, submissions need to be formally emailed to citizens100@leicester.ac.uk  as a video file or URL, along with your full name and student ID.

About the scholarship (international students)
