General postgraduate funding awards

Merit Scholarships

Our range of merit scholarships reward the very best students based on extra-curricular achievements. The University of Exeter is pleased to offer the following awards from September 2016.

Endowed scholarships

Endowed scholarships are financial gifts given to the university to help students fund their studies. Often they come with a number of conditions and are subject to an annual funding review. For further details, please see our Endowed Scholarships for Masters students page.

Charitable trusts

Details of charitable trusts and other funding organisations can be found in a number of publications including the Grants Register, published by Palgrave Macmillan, and the Directory of Grant-Making Trusts. These can be found in libraries and university careers services. Most of these organisations would only make a relatively small contribution towards the costs of your studies.
