Application procedure

Please note – to be eligible to apply, you must be in attendance at a university at the start of the 2017/2018 academic year. 

How to apply

We have two application rounds each year. Our first application round for the 2017/2018 academic year will open on 1 August 2017. 

When the round is open, please log in to the online application system to make an application. 

Closing dates

The deadline for our first application round is 1 November 2017 at 5pm.

If you miss the first application round, you can apply for our second round, which will open on 1 January 2018. The deadline for this round is 1 March 2018 at 5pm.


We aim to make decisions on applications within four to six weeks after each closing date. Decisions on applications are taken by the Trustees of the Leverhulme Trade Charities Trust. All decisions are final. 

Successful applicants will receive payments for their remaining time at university. We do not backdate payments for any time at university prior to your application.
