Additional funding

Prospective UK undergraduate students can apply for a range of funding provided by donations from friends and alumni of the University of Bristol.

The application for additional funding is a process for applying for several bursaries and scholarships.

Successful applicants will be matched to a range of bursaries and scholarships that are funded by alumni and friends of the University.

Payments will normally be made in the first year of study only.


You can apply if you:

  • can demonstrate financial need, most available funds have an element of means-testing.
  • are a UK (home) student for fee purposes.
  • have an offer (or are awaiting a decision) to study for an undergraduate degree starting in 2021/22.

This funding is in addition to the main University of Bristol Bursary, which students do not need to apply for.

Application process

Apply using the online application form.


Applications for the 2021/22 academic year are now closed. The application deadline was 5 pm, 25 April 2021.

Assessment process

Students who are successful will be matched to an available scheme and be asked to accept the terms and conditions of that scheme.
