What is a Scholarship?

scholarships, stamford endowed schools A scholarship is a prestigious award which recognises a very high standard of achievement in a competitive examination or assessment, carrying with it the title of ‘scholar’ for the winning boy or girl. It is not linked to parental income but can involve financial support. A student may apply for and be awarded more than one type of scholarship. They may add to this during their time at the schools, but it is also understood that the awards will only continue subject to the appropriate level of commitment. Typically these scholarships amount to an award of between £500 to £1000 a year. In cases where it would still be impossible for a scholarship winner to join the school, further bursarial support may be provided on a means-tested basis (see section on Bursaries).
