Undergraduate Scholarships

Award Details

A scholar will receive around £1,000 per annum (some companies offer more, some slightly less), and the scholar may be offered a paid work placement over the summer between the third and fourth years of study.

When you graduate the awarding company may offer you a job. You are not obliged to accept it.




The first step in applying for a scholarship is to apply to study Informatics at Edinburgh through the UCAS system.

If your first examinations results are good you will be automatically selected and invited to apply for a scholarship.

We will then forward your CV and exam results to the sponsoring company and you will be invited to an interview.

Following the interview, the company will write to you to let you know whether your application has been successful or not.
