New Community Scholarships for students at Medway and Canterbury campuses

The Community Scholarships programme, previously known as Medway Community Scholarships, is now open to all students applicants registered at both the Canterbury and Medway campuses, from all stages, disciplines and modes of study. Projects can be related to sport, arts, music, cultural or any other interest area.

The Community Scholarships programme aims to empower students to either deliver self-devised projects or collaborate on an existing project which engages with the local community, and develops the student experience. The hope is that the scholarship will give students the opportunity to demonstrate leadership, enthusiasm and organisational skills, whilst benefiting the community.

The Community Scholarships can support co-curricular projects that either stem from a students personal interest, a community organisation, or a University of Kent department.

What’s included in the scholarship?

  • £1,000 financial support to cover personal expenses and project running costs.
  • Advice, training and project management support from the Student Activities and Scholarships Officer in delivering your project.
  • Personal and employability skills development.
  • Employability points.
  • Access to additional project funding dependent on the nature and quality of the individual scholarship project.
