Postgraduate students who find it difficult to secure funding can always seek financial support from the Plymouth University Alumni Discretionary awards. This is an award of 10% controlled by the alumni of Plymouth University. There is no limitation where the field of study of the applicant is concerned.
Being a Plymouth University graduate is the first criteria that needs to be fulfilled for eligibility. Furthermore, applicants need to be enrolled full or part time in a postgraduate programme that charges a fee. The award is only applicable to regions of the applicant’s education that are self funded. Applicants must be UK citizens or citizens of a country in the European Union.
