How did you first hear about the Experience Sheffield scholarship?

I was looking through the scholarships section of the University of Sheffield’s website and came across this scholarship.

How did you find out if you would be eligible to apply for the scholarship?

Within the Experience Sheffield scholarship section of the website it stated the criteria that must be met in order to apply for the scholarship. I also received an email a couple of months after I received my offer to study at Sheffield stating that I was eligible to apply.

Do you receive any other financial support from the University, in addition to government support?

As well as being in receipt of the scholarship I also receive the University of Sheffield Bursary.


Try to take time to think about what you want to say in response to application questions because I think that is what sets people apart.
