A variety of terms are used for funding opportunities or financial aid given to students to help them further their education. There is crossover between these different terms. You should read the eligibility criteria carefully and also any terms and conditions attached to the individual award.
If you have the talent, ability and drive to study with us, we want to make sure you make the most of the opportunity, regardless of your financial circumstances.
That is why we offer a substantial package of funding opportunities to encourage and support well qualified, ambitious students to come and study at the University of Stirling. Please use the search function on this page to find funding opportunities available to you.
You can apply for a range of University funding as well as funding provided by UK and international government bodies, the European Commission, funding trusts, a number of research councils, industry and employers.
We use different terminology such as scholarship, bursary and studentship and there is a helpful glossary of terms to help guide you.
