Having somewhere of your own to call home matters. With the Unite Foundation scholarship, you’ll have accommodation and bills covered for up to 3 years of study. That includes all through the holidays too, so you don’t have to wonder where to go during reading weeks or over Christmas or summer. You can even stay the summer after you graduate to plan your next move. The Unite Foundation team will help you settle in, keep in touch and offer plenty of opportunities for employment and enjoyment. So far, over 500 estranged and care experienced young people have gone to university on the Unite Foundation scholarship, are you next?
Who can apply
You can apply for the scholarship if you’re:
- 25 or under
- A statutory care leaver or estranged from your family
- Starting or studying your first undergraduate degree
- Eligible for UK home fee status

Covid-19 is affecting a lot of life right now and unfortunately this means scholarship applications are closed for the 2021/22 academic year. If you’re already on the scholarship, don’t worry, nothing will change for you.
The Unite Foundation looks forward to accepting new applications in January 2022 for anyone looking to join the scholarship in September 2022. If you would like more information about how to apply, get in touch with the Unite Foundation team and and, as always, they will be happy to help!
