Supporting You Through University
The Longford Scholarships were first awarded in 2004 and since then have supported more than 300 young serving and ex-prisoners with money and mentoring to go to university. Around 80 per cent graduate. The closing date for applications is June 5 for courses starting in or after September that academic year. Those doing a first degree are given priority but occasional awards are made for postgraduate work. You will get a decision by the end of June.
If you have served a prison sentence within the past five years, have the right to remain in the UK, and have a provisional offer of a place at a UK university, you should go to our Application Form for detailed guidance on whether you qualify and how to fill in the form.
The impact of Covid-19 on universities and prisons continues to be uncertain not only for current students but also for people applying for 2021 admissions. If you would like to discuss your application you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange a time to talk.
