The Unite Foundation is a charitable trust which specialises in transforming the lives of young people by enabling access to higher education.
The Unite Foundation Scholarship Scheme provides free accommodation to undergraduate students for the duration their studies, and an annual Cost of Living allowance of £3,000 (rising to £4,000 for students in London). Some 120 students are currently benefiting from a Unite Foundation Scholarship.
Particular emphasis is placed on supporting those young people for whom access to a secure home is of particular significance, and priority is given to those students who come from a background of care or estrangement.
The Unite Foundation works with ten university partners to manage applications and award the applications.
