Scholarships, Awards & Grants

Rationale: The benefits of higher education go beyond increasing a student’s potential employability and earning power over the course of their career. Graduates lead healthier lifestyles, contribute more to their communities and are more tolerant towards a diverse community than their contemporaries who do not participate in higher education [Source: ‘Revisiting the benefits of higher education’ – HEFCE research 2003].

With this in mind, at UNYT we believe that everyone should aspire to achieving a university education and that no student should be deterred from applying to our University solely for financial reasons. It is for this reason that UNYT, in collaboration with various companies and institutions, offers a series of competitive scholarships, awards and grants for outstanding undergraduate students studying for a Bachelor’s degree.
