Bank of England has launched scholarship programme for Afro- Caribbean, Black and mixed race students. What they have called “a key part of our commitment to attracting and inspiring the best people to public service.”
The scholarship offers financial support to students from Black or Mixed African or Caribbean backgrounds who will be starting their undergraduate degree courses at UK universities in the autumn of 2017.
Successful applicants stand to receive up to £30,000 over the course of their undergraduate degree, as a contribution towards their living expenses and other costs of study. Successful applicants will also be offered two paid summer internships with Bank of England, as well as other skills training and support throughout their time at university.
For 2017 entry, there are three scholarships for students from the United Kingdom.
