Amazon Women in Innovation Bursary

One undergraduate bursary is available to a UK female student studying Informatics.

One undergraduate bursary is available to a UK female student commencing an undergraduate degree in Informatics at the University of Edinburgh in the 2018-2019 academic session.

The bursary recipient will benefit from mentoring from a female member of staff working in a Software role with Amazon Development Centre (Scotland) Ltd to help with CV and interview advice. Following their 2nd and 3rd year, the award holder will benefit from guaranteed interviews for internships at Amazon Development Centre (Scotland) Ltd. The successful applicant will also be expected to take part in events (attending talks and hackathons) run by Amazon on campus.

The value of the bursary will be £3,500 per annum and will normally be made available for the duration of a student's undergraduate degree, subject to satisfactory progress.


The bursary is awarded on the basis of significant financial need, but the University will also take account of other personal or family circumstances which might make it difficult for you to take up a place.

Academic merit is not considered since it is assumed that those who receive an offer of a place have fully demonstrated their ability and potential to benefit from Higher Education.

Applicants must be UK students entering their first year of an undergraduate degree within the School of Informatics.

Applicants also should already have:

  • applied through University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS)
  • been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh
  • firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so

Accepting the University of Edinburgh as an insurance offer does not satisfy the conditions relating to this bursary.


Eligible applicants should complete an online bursary application. To do so please log in to MyEd, select EUCLID then select "My UG Applications" followed by "My Bursary Applications" from the menu on the left.

Please note that you will not be able to access the online application form unless you have applied for admission to the University of Edinburgh and have full EASE authentication.

The deadline for the receipt of applications for the 2018-2019 session is 15 June 2018.
