Most of GTC's (and the University's) scholarships are intended for incoming students. This is because all students are required to complete a Financial Declaration Form before commencing their studies, confirming that they have sufficient funds to cover their fees and living costs for the duration of their programme.
Occasionally GTC is able to offer small scholarships to continuing students. If this is the case, they will be notified to all students later in the academic year. They will also be advertised on this website on the Scholarship pages and linked to from this page.
Current students who are in need of additional funds should consult the University's Fees and Funding page for on-course graduates.
GTC John Penny Student-to-Student Scholarship
Deadline: Monday 16 June 2014
Value: £5000 for one year
Restrictions: Current GTC students who will be continuing at GTC in academic year 2014/15
In 2013, GTC participated in a University-wide campaign whereby donations towards college initiatives from new alumni would be matched by the University. Two anonymous donors at GTC turned this into a ‘triple match’ opportunity.
Thanks to the resulting ‘Student Leavers Challenge Fund’, GTC is pleased to be able to offer a scholarship of £5,000 for study in academic year 2014/15. This award is named in honour of GTC Lodge Porter John Penny, who passed away suddenly in September 2013. John is remembered for his spirit of care and warmth, and helping a student to be a part of the GTC community is a fitting tribute to him.
Applicants must be current students at GTC who will be continuing at GTC in academic year 2014/15. This includes students continuing on the same programme or progressing to a new programme. There is no restriction on the subject area, country of origin or fee status of applicants.
Candidates for the scholarship should submit a CV and a personal statement of no more than 1000 words. The principal criterion will be contribution to college life, with the successful candidate showing a demonstrable impact on the GTC community. Candidates should be in good academic standing, and should also include details of any financial support currently received or secured for the coming year from the college, university or other funding body.
The awarding panel may also refer to information in a current student’s college file or an applicant’s programme application.
Applications should be by the above closing date.
