Newtons' Scholarship 2022 entry
The Newtons’ Undergraduate Scholarship in Mathematics is now open to receive applications from UK students applying to study any undergraduate degree led by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Surrey in 2022.
The Newtons’ Undergraduate Scholarship in Mathematics has been established by Paul and Jenny Newton, both of whom studied Mathematics as undergraduates at the University of Surrey.
The Newtons’ Undergraduate Scholarship in Mathematics provides £3,000 a year for up to three years, plus £1,000 for a Professional Training placement if taken. The Scholarship aims to encourage and support students from lower-income backgrounds on any undergraduate degree programme led by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Surrey:
- Mathematics BSc (Hons)/MMath
- Mathematics with Statistics BSc (Hons)/MMath
- Mathematics with Music BSc (Hons)
- Financial Mathematics BSc (Hons)
Students can receive The Newtons’ Undergraduate Scholarship in Mathematics in addition to a University Merit Scholarship as well as any other bursary, prize and award for which they are eligible, if successful.
Laura, a previous recipient, explains, “Having the Newtons’ scholarship has allowed me to be financially secure throughout my time at university. This security has allowed me to focus on my studies and, because of this, I have been able to achieve grades I’m very happy with. I have not needed to find part-time work to pay for rent or living expenses. I have instead used this spare time to study an extra course in British Sign Language, have taken on the role of Course Representative this year, and have begun to learn how to drive.”
To be eligible you must meet the following criteria:
- Have an offer to study at undergraduate level any subject/s led by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Surrey
- Have chosen the University of Surrey as your first or insurance choice
- Have family income of no more than £35,000
- Maintain a minimum level of 2:1 (60% or higher) throughout the course.
