The Holbeck Scholarship

These scholarships are open to pupils from schools and colleges in the Yorkshire and Humber region, who are applying to a UK university (not just York) for entry in September 2017.
The scholarships are worth a one-off payment of £1,250 in Year 1. The scholarships are funded by the Holbeck Charitable Trust, in partnership with the Excellence Hub for Yorkshire and Humber.
They are aimed at talented students who may have faced challenging circumstances (social, personal or educational) and have successfully applied to university perhaps in the face of adversity. The application process is competitive with a limited number of scholarships available.
We are delighted and proud to present our scholars of 2017:
Nicole Hammond who is going to study Medicine at the University of Sheffield
Vicky Longa who is going to the University of Sheffield to study Dentistry.

The Holbeck Scholarship presentation in the Hospitium in the York Museum Gardens on Thursday 31st of August. Glenda Jackson was the distinguished Guest and she made a really thoughtful speech; she spoke with all the recipients and their parents. The venue was beautiful and Thank You to the University Of York for a wonderful occasion.
Our congratulations to our Scholars and we wish them well as they start their new adventures.
