BAME in Higher Education Scholarship

University of Kent scholarship for BAME students considering Masters study

University of Kent’s ‘Tomorrow’s World’ scholarships—a series aimed at supporting our Finalist students’ continuing to postgraduate Masters study. While two of the series—the ‘Excellence Scholarship’ and the ‘Civic Mission Scholarship’—opened earlier in the month, a third open’s today—‘BAME in Higher Education Scholarship.’

The BAME in Higher Education Scholarship is intended for current Final Year undergraduate applicants who identify as Black, Asian or a Minoritized Ethnic person. The scholarship is aimed to supporting UK Fee paying applicants with a 2:1 or first class degree continuing to Masters study at any of Kent’s location. Award of these scholarships provide £3,000 towards the cost of tuition fees and a total of 18 awards will be available under the scheme.

We encourage all who qualify for the award to apply by Sunday 1 August 2021, 23:59 BST.

A recent reflection on the scholarship name:

The University of Kent is aware of an ongoing and growing conversation that ‘BAME’ does not fully reflect the complexity or nuances of diversity within racially marginalized communities in the UK. Here, we use ‘BAME’ to highlight racial identities critically underrepresented within Higher Education—a focus this scholarship is intended to address.
