The Westheimer Health and Social Care Scholarship
The Westheimer Scholarship is an initiative of the Schwab Westheimer Trust which was established by former refugees who benefited from welcome and support in the UK when fleeing Nazi Germany.
This scholarship helps young asylum seekers (aged up to 28 years old) pursue higher education in health and social care, medicine, nursing or related professions. Up to three people a year will be supported with a Westheimer Scholarship to study for a first degree or professional qualification. The scholarship will pay home tuition fees, and living costs up to a maximum of £11,500 per year. The specific amount awarded will be dependent on the candidate’s individual circumstances, university location, and the completion of a detailed budgeting session prior to enrolment.
Applications will open on 20th April 2020 and close at midnight on the 16th June 2020.
If you have any questions about this scholarship, please contact our Higher Education team.
