Our new bursary is now open for applications.
Sutton Trust alumni and alumni of the Aspiring Professionals Programme by JPMorgan Chase and the Social Mobility Foundation – which connects students with hands-on job training and skills development for careers in financial services – can now apply for funding of up to £5,000 to support participation in extracurricular activities, as part of a new collaboration between the Sutton Trust and JPMorgan Chase.
The funding comes from a new £4.8m bursary fund announced earlier this year, a collaboration between the Trust and JPMorgan Chase, to widen access to extracurricular activities.
Successful applicants can use the funding for a range of activities to develop their life skills, such as:
Previous Sutton Trust research has found developing life skills is as important to teachers and employers as academic success. Research from the Trust in February found that 1 in 5 working-class graduates could not afford to take up a work experience placement during university. This has been further impacted by the pandemic.
Students applications close on Friday 15th October at 12pm.
