We support ex-prisoners to gain a university education

We offer scholarships to ex-prisoners to enable them to undertake higher education courses. These are worth a maximum of £5,000 per year. Each scholar is also assigned a mentor - someone who can offer practical and emotional advice. More about our scholarships.
