National Scholarship Programme

The National Scholarship Programme (NSP) is designed to help students in Higher Education whose family income is £25,000 a year or less. NSP awards are in addition to any other loans or grants you may apply for. You can apply once you have a firm offer for a place and you apply direct to Bournemouth University (for Foundation Degree in Marine Ecology and Conservation) or direct to Kingston Maurward College (for Foundation Degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare).
