Stormzy Scholarships Open to Applications

This year a further 30 Black students are to receive a £20,000 per year scholarship to study at the University of Cambridge following a new philanthropic partnership between HSBC UK and the #Merky Foundation, the UK charity founded by British musician, Stormzy.

The scholarships will fund the tuition fees and maintenance costs (the equivalent of £20,000 per student each year) for 10 new students each year over the next three years, for a degree course of either three or four years’ duration.

The combined support of HSBC UK, the #Merky Foundation as well as an anonymous donor means the University plans to welcome 13 Stormzy Scholars in the autumn.

Deadline for applications is 27 August 2021
