Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Helena Kennedy Foundation Awards

The Foundation provides support to students whose personal and financial circumstances make progression to higher education difficult.



We provide vital financial support to our award winners, but we know that worries about money are only part of the story.  The HKF award is a package of financial, personal and practical support and opportunities designed to support transition into higher education, enhance the student’s experience at university and improve chances of employment after graduation.

Please note a student can start an application, save and return later to complete.  However changes cannot be made once the final submission is made.

Online Application form


Applicants do not need to indicate which award they are applying for, but if their personal circumstances, HE or course choice match the criteria for any of the awards it is important that they include this information in their personal statement so that we can match them to the available awards.

Your college can submit up to five applications unless it is part of the College Badged Bursary Scheme and if your student is successful they will usually receive a bursary of £2,250 together with ongoing support, mentoring and training to help them achieve their potential.

The closing date for applications is 26th April 2018
