Asylum Seeker Scholarship at University of Strathclyde in UK 2021

The University of Strathclyde in the UK invites applications for the Asylum Seeker Scholarship in the 2021/2022 academic session.

The University has worked closely with the University of Strathclyde Students’ Association, Scottish Refugee Council and The Carnegie Trust in developing this Scholarship which is intended to help Asylum Seekers and those staying in the UK on humanitarian grounds to overcome barriers in progressing to higher education.

The scholarship is open to prospective undergraduate and taught postgraduate students of the University of Strathclyde.

Worth of Award

The scholarship meets the cost of your tuition fees and includes an allowance for essential study-related expenditure.


Applications will be considered from potential students who:

  • hold a conditional or unconditional offer for study at the University of Strathclyde for 2019-2020; and
  • have submitted, or are the dependant of someone who has submitted, an application to the Home Office for recognition as a Refugee under the 1951 UN Convention on the Status of Refugees (hereafter “The Convention”) and not yet received a decision from the Home Office on that application; or
  • have been offered leave to remain in the UK on the grounds of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights provided that the student has not become eligible for Student Support from the relevant student funding body in Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland.
  • Applicants must live within the Glasgow area at the point of application as housing costs are not covered by the scholarship. Applications will only be accepted from prospective students outwith the Glasgow area if they submit written evidence of appropriate accommodation arrangements at the point of application.
  • Applications will also be considered from students who have already started their course of study but have subsequently applied for asylum and can no longer access their original funding.
  • In these cases it will be necessary to establish that the original funding for study is no longer available and applicants will be required to provide supporting evidence.
