The Newtons' Undergraduate Scholarship in Mathematics 2024 entry

The Newtons’ Undergraduate Scholarship in Mathematics is now open to receive applications from home/UK students studying any undergraduate mathematics degree led by the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Surrey, starting in September 2024.


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 of our undergraduate mathematics degree programmes:

Students can receive this Scholarship 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.”

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have an offer to study at undergraduate level on one of our mathematics degrees
