Scholarships and bursaries

We offer the following scholarships and bursaries to students in our Department:

Kilburn Scholarships

As a Department we offer three Kilburn Scholarships in memory of Tom Kilburn, who designed and built the world's first stored program computer here in Manchester in 1948.

They are awarded on academic merit to UK/EU students who we believe have the skills and aptitude to help the Department build on Kilburn's legacy of achievement and innovation.

All students are considered for funding when they apply, therefore there is no need to complete a separate application form. Students with exceptionally high grades stand a better chance of being awarded.

Manchester Master's Bursary

The University of Manchester offers 100 bursaries for master's students, each worth £3,000 in funding, to UK and EU students who will be starting taught or research master's courses in September.

The bursaries aim to widen access to master's courses by removing barriers to postgraduate education for students from underrepresented groups. You will therefore need to meet certain criteria to be eligible for the award.
