We are delighted to have launched this scholarship programme. It’s 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 2018.

Successfully apply, and you could receive up to £30,000 over the course of your undergraduate degree, as a contribution towards your living expenses and other costs of study. You’ll also be offered two paid summer internships with us, as well as other skills training and support throughout your time at university. For 2018 entry, we are offering up to three scholarships for students from the United Kingdom.

We have launched this scholarship in association with the Windsor Fellowship.

More information about the eligibility criteria and application process can be found on the Windsor Fellowship website. 

Applications for the 2018 intake have now closed.

We believe our programmes are focused on students at different points in their academic life and so are not expecting applicants to apply for more than one programme. To that end, your first application will be accepted and any duplicates will be rejected.

If you have a situation that you believe you would like to be considered for more than one programme in any given year, please email the Bank of England Team at Penna for further discussion about your circumstances.
