PPR Scholarships 2019/20

In addition to the Scholarships and Bursaries offered by Lancaster University, PPR has two bursaries of its own:

PPR Academic Bursary

Thanks to a recent generous donation from a former student, PPR offers a limited number of £3000 (£1000 per year) undergraduate academic scholarships. Because Lancaster University already offers academic scholarships, the PPR scholarships will be awarded to those students whose grades do not render them eligible for the Lancaster University academic scholarship, but who, in the view of the PPR scholarship panel, show exceptional academic promise.

PPR Access Bursary

Due to the generosity of a PPR alumnus, PPR will now be offering an additional bursary, this one of £10,000, targeting students who come from a household with an income of less than £25,000. The scheme will be awarded to one Home UG student,  in the first year of studying a degree scheme entirely within the department.  The access bursary is restricted to students whose main residence is in either Lancashire or Cumbria at the time of application.

How To Apply

Once you have applied for your financial support from the government and you have received an offer from Lancaster, your application for a scholarship or bursary will proceed automatically. A final decision for the PPR Academic Bursary will be made in October and successful candidates will be informed. A final decision for the PPR Access Bursary will also be made in October and successful candidates will be informed.

Eligibility for PPR Academic Bursary

The PPR Academic Bursaries will be allocated by subject area as follows. ONE scholarship (in total) for the following schemes of study:

  • 6T99 International Relations
  • L200 Politics
  • L250 Politics and International Relations
  • LL92 Peace Studies and International Relations

  • V627 Religious Studies
  • VV65 Philosophy and Religious Studies
  • VV56 Ethics, Philosophy, Religion

  • 6B71 International Relations and Religious Diversity

In order to be eligible for consideration for the PPR Academic Bursary the candidate:

  • must have made one of the degree schemes within PPR noted above his/ her firm UCAS choice.
  • must not be an immediate relative of the academic or administrative staff of the Department.
  • must be registered as a "Home" student for fee purposes.

The PPR scholarship does not affect eligibility for means-tested Lancaster University bursaries, or other national means-tested bursaries and grants (for example, a student in receipt of the PPR scholarship, from a lower-income family, might receive the PPR scholarship AND a means tested Lancaster bursary, and additional national support via bursary schemes and grants).

Application and Selection

There is no application form for applying for the PPR scholarship. All applicants to PPR who fulfil the requirements mentioned above and express interest will be reviewed by the PPR scholarship panel. A final decision will be made in October and successful candidates will be informed.

Please note: the intention of the scholarship is to give financial help throughout the undergraduate programme. Therefore, the scholarship will be divided into three annual payments, of £1000 each, over the period of the recipient’s 3 year undergraduate degree programme. Continued receipt of the PPR scholarship is conditional upon satisfactory academic progression and upon the recipient remaining registered for one of the eligible degree programmes within PPR listed above.
