These can include pension payments and allowances for other dependant children. More information is available from your local authority / Student Finance England or equivalent assessing agency. Please note that before being accepted into the programme, we will require proof of income.

** Accepting a participating university as an insurance choice does not satisfy the conditions relating to the Lloyds Scholars programme.

*** Students with course durations of five years or more are not eligible for the programme, unless the course is a five year ‘sandwich’ or placement course which includes a year in industry. In this case, the Scholar would receive a bursary and any other financial rewards for four out of the five years, but would not receive payments, or be required to complete 100 hours volunteering, during their placement year.
