Online hub offers students scholarships worth over £8 million

Students can gain details of scholarships, grants or bursaries, worth in total around £80 million, through a new online portal.

The Scholarship Hub claims to be the first comprehensive database of funding available solely for potential UK university students and undergraduates wishing to study at universities in the UK.

The new hub features over 1,000 scholarships, grants and bursaries, from over 150 universities and organisations.

Winning a scholarship could stop students being priced out of university with a three year degree now estimated to cost £75,000, according to MoneySupermarket.com.

Helping to demystify student funding, making it accessible and simple to understand the site will help students make informed decisions quickly and simply.

The site also provides useful tips and guidance on applying for scholarships and funds.

A range of scholarships are available including a number of unusual ones catering for vegetarians, Welsh speakers, top golfers and even budding singers.

The hub is updated weekly and visitors to the site can register to receive updates on new scholarships. It is also actively approaching companies to encourage them to develop new scholarship offerings in the future.
