The EV Foundation Bursary Scheme

Updated: Jun 25

The EV Foundation's Bursary Scheme aims to sponsor 10 students each year for alumni who have recently graduated from Bayside School, Westside School or the Gibraltar College of Further Education.


The scheme will work in collaboration with the Barzilai Foundation. The bursaries are designed to support students who are applying to undergraduate programmes outside of Gibraltar and who demonstrate needs outside of the government’s “Mandatory” award.


The bursary will provide financial assistance of up to £5500 annually to help cover living expenses and can be renewed for up to three years depending on satisfactory academic performance and continued enrolment. This bursary entitles students to a weekly grant, which can be used to cover living expenses, educational costs, such as university equipment or supplies and flights from Gibraltar to the U.K.




Why do we need a bursary?


While we are incredibly fortunate that the Government of Gibraltar provides a Scholarship award and grant to students pursuing studies in the U.K., the reality is that these funds may not fully cover all of the expenses associated with studying abroad.


It is clear that especially for students who come from families already struggling with financial issues, additional financial resources are necessary to ensure that all students have access to the educational opportunities they deserve, regardless of where they choose to study.


The bursary is not just about providing financial assistance to students, it is about providing opportunity. For many students coming from vulnerable backgrounds, it will be the first time they leave Gibraltar. Allowing them to do so without worrying about their financial situation will allow them to make the transition to university life as smooth as possible.


How can I apply?


Applicants wishing to apply must get in contact with their school and meet the following criteria: graduated within the past two years, have a referral from a faculty member at their school, and have applied for the “Mandatory” award.


Applications will be accepted from June 11th to July 15th, 2024.
