Partner University Summer SchoolsStudent with deer in Denmark

Students who participate in one of a selected list of partner institution summer schools can apply for one of the following bursaries:

  • Santander worldwide partner summer school scholarship - £1,000
  • European partner summer school scholarship - £750

This is open to all students, however you must be returning to Sheffield to complete your studies following the summer school (i.e. you cannot apply in your final year).

There are reserved places for bursary students, so Sheffield bursary students are strongly encouraged to apply!

When applying, you must choose one summer school only from the list of 12 available. If you are relying on a fee waiver provided by the partner summer school to be able to afford the experience, then you can list a second option in your application. Details of which summer schools offer fee waivers are provided below.

Partner websites may still show information for summer 2019, and we anticipate details for summer 2020 will be published in December/January.

The application deadline is Monday 6th January 2020.
