Great to see that the University of Warwick have announced a new £10 million social mobility programme - Warwick Scholars.
The new programme aims to remove educational, financial and social barriers to a Warwick education and focuses on prospective students from disadvantaged backgrounds or groups under-represented in higher education within a 30 mile commute of Warwick’s main campus in Coventry and Warwickshire.
The new programme is forecast to cost Warwick almost £10 million a year to run when running at full capacity and will include:
• Admission Offers that can be up to 4 grades below Warwick’s standard A level offer
• A 50% tuition fee discount per year of study and a means-tested enhanced bursary of £2,000 – a total package worth up to £19,500 per student over three years of study or up to £26,000 for 4 year degree programme. Students may also be able to gain a further Warwick Undergraduate Bursary which could mean a total package of up to £5000 a year.
• A package of ongoing support measures before & during each young person’s time at Warwick.
