How to apply
To help us to get to know you, we will ask you for a personal statement of between 600 and 900 words explaining:
- Why the scholarship would be beneficial to your studies
- How it would help you to achieve your academic goals
- How your education would be of future benefit to your community and/or society
- What achievements, academically and personally, are you most proud of? This could include overcoming a challenging personal circumstance. There is no right or wrong answer. We are keen to hear your personal story
We will also look at where you live and other measures of educational challenges, often referred to as socio-economic metrics.
Please check your eligibility before making an application. Awards may be withdrawn if we later become aware that successful scholars have not met eligibility criteria or have provided false information.
Apply for this award online here. You will need to provide your personal statement as a Microsoft Word document. The closing date is 28 April 2022 and late applications cannot be accepted.
A panel including University of Hull staff members and local professionals will assess applications and compile a shortlist of the strongest applications. The shortlist will be sent to The Cowrie Scholarship Foundation, who will make the final decision.
Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by the first week of September 2022.
