For 2014 entry only, the University of Leeds is offering awards worth £10k for postgraduate students from less advantaged backgrounds as part of a project working with HEFCE and five partner universities.
The aim of the project is to provide an array of financial, guidance and academic products designed to address falling postgraduate numbers, especially among those from lower income backgrounds.
A £380k donation from University alumni and friends has been matched by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), enabling the creation of this one-off pilot programme, which aims to address inequalities in take-up of postgraduate studies from under-represented groups
