USW Armed Forces (AF) Bursary Award

October 23, 2018

Are you an ex-AF student currently studying at the University of South Wales? USW are proud to announce that there is a one-off £1000 bursary in association with Cardiff Business Club available to one of our ex-AF students.

All applications will be judged against the criteria listed below and are invited to be submitted to our Armed Forces Champion, Ross Hall by 12:00 pm on 12th November, with the winner being announced by the end of November 2018.

A panel will judge applications and the successful applicant will receive the award at a dinner to be hosted by Cardiff Business Club, sponsored by USW in March 2019.

Applicants must:

  • Have served in the British Armed Forces (either Regular or Reserve Forces)
  • Be studying on a Full-time Undergraduate course at USW
  • Be self-funding your course, or using the ‘usual’ student funding routes to undergraduate study (i.e., not in receipt of MoD funding support via ELCAS)
  • Provide evidence of commitment to USW values (Creative, Inspiring, Professional Responsive)
  • Provide evidence of outstanding academic progress (NB – not necessarily achievement, but could be related to success against the odds etc.)
  • Demonstrate a commitment to on-going AF engagement (e.g., readiness to mentor current or future ex-AF students; contribution to AF recruitment; improving the student experience for ex-AF personnel etc.)

Applications of no more than 1000 words (the more succinct the better) to be submitted to ross.hall@southwales.ac.uk, by 12.00 pm on 12th November 2018.
