The Care Leaver and Foyer Bursary comprises an award of minimum £1000 per year which is given to full-time ‘home’ undergraduate students of the University of East London, who are eligible for Student Finance England funding and have lived in care or in a foyer.
This scholarship is open to full-time undergraduate students enrolled at the University of East London aged under 25 years at the start of their course. Care leavers will need to attach a letter from their social worker, caseworker or Home manager confirming that they are a ‘care leaver’. Foyer residents will need to provide a letter which has been signed off by their foyer keyworker or foyer manager. Students will therefore first need to register with the Foyer Federation and they will then be sent a letter for completion by their keyworker.
