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.
Covid-19 is causing uncertainty and apprehension over university admissions for September 2020. If you’ve already applied to us for a scholarship, or are thinking of doing so, and are now worrying about how the current lack of clarity will impact on your application, why not email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to talk it over.
