General Information

The Peel Studentship Trust was established in 1964 by donations from the Dowager Countess Eleanor Peel Trust. Find more information about the Trust.

The awards are available for the support of students for first or higher degrees, in any subject. The period of the award is one academic year, although students can apply each year. The value of the award is determined by the Trustees in each case.

Applicants must be aged 21 and over on the first day of the first term for which they are seeking assistance. The award is based on academic merit and financial hardship. The Trustees will consider both academic and financial positions.

The application process (see below) for this award is very competitive and therefore only fully completed applications will be considered.  A maximum of approximately 25 awards are made each year.
